Like many New Yorkers, Kori Chambers is a proud first-generation American. His parents left Jamaica in the 1970s looking for opportunity for their growing family. Joining PIX11 in 2013 as Morning News co-anchor was an exciting homecoming for the Bronx native.

Kori comes on board after 5 years as an anchor of Good Day Chicago. His broadcasting career also includes work as a reporter and anchor in Detroit, Las Vegas and Springfield, Mass.

Over the years Kori has covered everything from spot news to political corruption, including the downfall of a sitting governor, mayor, several city council members, and a U.S. congressman. He has also anchored hours of continuous breaking news coverage and was recently nominated for an Emmy for his coverage of urban violence.

Kori’s first big break was right here in New York, sitting next to Regis Philbin as a fill in co-host on “Live! With Regis and Kelly.”

He lives in Queens with his wife and their dog Zainy, who is a rescue from Yonkers Animal Shelter.
