Cory McCloskey graduated with a degree in speech/communication from Wheaton College in 1981 and a BA in communication from Quincy University in 1991. He spent the first decade of his career in Illinois, doing the weather broadcasts at WGEM from 1989 to 2001.
He arrived in Phoenix, Arizona, in 2001, and has been anchoring the weathercasts at Fox 10 Phoenix since then. He did the weekday morning and noon forecasts, along with additional slice-of-life reports, for years, and had his fair share of entertaining Internet moments.
Now he’s changing up his schedule. McCloskey announced he is leaving the morning show. He is not leaving Fox 10, however. He will instead shift to the evening time slot.
