Cory Smith started at WTAP in January of 2018. He is the Weekend Meteorologist and Weekday Reporter at the station.

Cory began his passion for the weather while he was a child living in Tampa, Florida. While there, he experienced the very tropically active seasons of 2004 and 2005. Seeing the sheer power of what a storm could do really sparked his interest in the weather occurring around him every day.

In 2009, Cory moved to Charlotte, North Carolina. While here, experienced his first taste of having 4 seasons. The first week while living there, there was a large snow/ice storm and from that moment on he was captivated by all things "winter weather" related. Starting in 2013 Cory attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (GO NINERS!) where he graduated with a B.S. in Meteorology.

On his spare time, Cory likes to go around and take photos with his DSLR of the world around him. He is a huge Tampa Bay Rays and Carolina Panthers fan.

Now that he is in Parkersburg, Cory looks forward to connecting with all his viewers on social media as well as out and around the Mid-Ohio Valley.
