Cody Alcorn is a FOX Carolina News Tonight Co-Anchor who, along with Diana Watson, reports in the 4pm, 10pm and 11pm news broadcasts.
Cody volunteers a lot of his time helping out local non-profits and charities in a variety of roles from delivering meals, emceeing, judging, to even dancing. When he’s not at work or helping out in the community, Cody can be found in downtown Greenville which is becoming a “foodie paradise” with over 100 restaurants. And you never know where you might bump into him while out enjoying the night life scene Greenville has to offer along Main Street!
If there’s one face that might be more familiar around town than Cody’s, it’s his dog, “G.” Cody’s a huge animal lover. G first appeared on The Morning News in 2006 when he was up for adoption at Greenville Animal Care. The two bonded and have been inseparable. “G” makes regular appearances with Cody around town and you can keep up with his shenanigans on one of Cody’s social media platforms.
He grew up in Sikeston, Mo., and went to school at The University of Tennessee at Martin, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications. Before moving to Greenville, Cody worked in Jackson, TN, where he was a co-anchor of the morning news at WBBJ-TV.
Something you may not know about Cody: “Before news consumed my life, I team-roped, calf-roped and just enjoyed taking an afternoon ride on my horses back home.”
In July 2006, Cody joined FOX Carolina as a reporter. About four years later, he joined The Morning News team as an anchor. In September 2013, Cody got the opportunity to return to FOX Carolina News Tonight as an anchor.
