Cory James
Cory James joined the ABC30 Action News team as a general assignment reporter in January 2016.

Before moving to Fresno, Cory was a reporter/fill-in anchor based in the northern Santa Barbara County bureau for KEYT-TV and KCOY-TV. His first story involved reporting on the Isla Vista mass shooting that killed six people and injured more than a dozen others around the University of California, Santa Barbara campus.

Cory graduated from the University of Georgia's Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. While in school, he interned for CNN and WSB-TV in Atlanta.

Originally from Georgia, Cory is excited to make California home. He is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists.

Cory loves to cook, travel and volunteer with local organizations.
