Gilbert Corsey - Anchor
Gilbert Corsey never stopped talking as a child. He grew up the youngest in a family of four always telling what his brother had done. The family called it tattling. Gilbert thinks it was actually his first crack at reporting.
He joined the WDRB news team in January 2011, as the co-anchor of WDRB News at 4 with Elizabeth Woolsey. It is the latest stop in a broadcasting career that has taken him across the country.
Gilbert started reporting in Abilene, Texas at KTXS-TV and specialized in education stories. This work earned top honors from the Texas chapter of the Associated Press. He then moved to Eastern North Carolina and added anchoring news and sports to his resume along with producing his own shows.
Just prior to joining WDRB, Gilbert served as the weekend anchor at a FOX and ABC affiliate in Charleston, West Virginia. There he had the opportunity to cover some of the biggest stories in the country, including the death of Robert C. Byrd, America's longest serving Senator and the explosion that killed 29 coal miners in April 2010.
Gilbert likes to get home to Seattle when he is not working. He graduated from the Edward R. Murrow School of Communication at Washington State University and remains a diehard Cougar fan….GO COUGS!!! He is also proud member of the fraternity Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI).
