Chief Meteorologist Cory Malles has been forecasting the weather at News 8 since 1993, broadcasting weather reports for News 8 at 5, 6 and 10.

He’s a native of the area, growing up along the Mississippi in Trempealeau, Wisconsin. He graduated from Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School and went on to study mass communication at Winona State University and meteorology from Mississippi State University in tiny little Starkville, Mississippi.

Even after nearly two decades of forecasting, Cory still enjoys the challenge of trying to figure out the atmosphere’s next move. He is just as fascinated by lightning, tornadoes, and snowstorms now as he was when he was a little boy. He also enjoys learning the new and ever-changing technology, which has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years.

Most of all… Cory loves serving area viewers, many of which are relatives that live throughout the area. Having family in the area makes forecasting very personal for him.

If you see him on the street or at the grocery store, don’t be afraid to come up and say hi.

Favorite band?
I can’t say I have just one, but I could name my top five: Jethro Tull, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Duran Duran, and Kiss.

Favorite movie?
I don’t watch a lot of movies (or TV for that matter)! If I had to pick a favorite movie, it would have to be “The Breakfast Club.” It’s as relevant today as when it first came out in the 80s.

Favorite motto or quote?
I don’t really have a favorite quote, but I truly believe in treating people the way you want to be treated.

Favorite way to spend a day off?
Fishing. It is one of the few things that can completely relax me and take my mind off the world. I don’t care whether I catch anything or not. Unfortunately, I don’t do it enough.
