How often does someone leave local Chicago newscasting for New York to take on a bigger spotlight? How often does that happen the other way around? Corey was considered one of, if not, the best of the up-and-comers working WABC in New York. McPherrin was originally from Markham, a suburb on the southern skirts of Cook County. He returned to Chicago in 1991 to work for WBBM CBS 2.
Not until he went to WFLD, and was able to take full advantage of the NFL on FOX that Corey McPherrin became solidified in Chicago sportscasters history, where he did everything from running highlights, to making sports skits.
Currently Corey hosts Good Day Chicago on WFLD Fox 32 every morning from 4:30AM to 10AM.
