ABC 30’s Cory James, perhaps best known as the reporter who wildly screamed on live TV while on a ride at Disneyland, has been elevated to the station’s weekend evening anchor.
James, a University of Georgia alum, made the official announcement Tuesday via Twitter.
James has been at the Disney-owned ABC station since the start of 2016, and was a reporter/fill-in anchor in the Central Coast for nearly two years before coming to Fresno.
He replaces Veronica Miracle, who left last month to work as a reporter for ABC 7 in Los Angeles.
Some of the stories that James has reported on recently include a Sikh community in Fresno raising money for Hurricane Harvey victims, the Pier Fire in Tulare County growing, and the Railroad Fire in Madera County growing.
