Our Emcee

Cory McCloskey

Cory McCloskey handles weather duties on FOX 10 News where's he's worked for the past two decades. But the place Cory really shines is on the road, meeting interesting people and sharing the many events happening throughout the valley. 

His weather career began at WGEM-TV in Quincy, Illinois in 1989. Before that, he spent the 1980s in show business, playing East Coast stages from New York to Washington, and also appeared on NBC's "Another World." While in the midwest, Cory hosted show choir competitions just like the Showoff in the Desert.

He's provided voice-overs and jingle work for national commercials, and frequently enjoys the privilege of opening a Suns or Diamondbacks game with the national anthem.

Cory and his wife, Mary Jane, live in Scottsdale. Their menagerie includes three daughters, two grandchildren, a dog, a cat, and a fish.
