WHO I AM

My name is Cory Smith. Currently, I am the Weekend Meteorologist/ Environmental Reporter at News15 in Lafayette, Louisiana.

I was born in Tampa, Florida where I grew up as a child. While there, I experienced the hurricane seasons of 2004-2005. When it comes down to it this is what originally sparked my interest in weather. In 2009 I moved to Charlotte, NC. I absolutely fell in love with the Queen City and the entire state of North Carolina. While there, I graduated with a B.S. in Meteorology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. In 2018, I moved to Parkersburg, WV to start my life as a TV Meteorologist at WTAP. While I was there, I gained experience forecasting all types of weather ranging from severe to winter weather. In November of 2019, I moved all the way down south here to Louisiana to begin my next chapter in life working at News 15! I am excited to share my journey with you here on my blog!
