Cory is the general manager of Breaking News, a real-time news service that highlights original breaking reports from news organizations and “accidental journalists.” The Breaking News network — which includes @breakingnews and BreakingNews.com — sends 200,000 clicks a day to original breaking stories. Breaking News is part of NBC News Digital, but remains a standalone, agnostic startup.
Cory is also the founder of Lost Remote, the first site dedicated to covering the rapidly-emerging social TV space. Lost Remote sold to MediaBistro earlier this year.
Prior to his role at Breaking News, Cory headed up new product development at msnbc.com. Earlier, he ran digital media for KING TV in Seattle and worked in a variety of TV newsrooms from KCRA to NBC News.
Separately, Cory and his wife Kate created Next Door Media, a community blog network in Seattle that won two national journalism awards.
