Cory Myers is a Connecticut native, raised in the All-American Valley borough of Naugatuck. She attended Holy Cross High School and went on to college at Eastern CT State University and Central CT where she was bitten by the radio bug. A graduate of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting (because college took too long for her!), she started her career as a traffic reporter flying in a plane above Hartford and quickly moved onto more solid ground, literally. Paying her dues in overnights, she quickly moved into mornings as a producer (since she was there when the morning show came in and they needed help anyway).
A music lover, Cory has worked on-air in Top 40, Hard rock, Oldies and Country, where she has made her home for the past 17 years. She’s covered the Grammy Awards, Radio Music Awards, several star studded movie premieres, the CMA’s and ACM’s and even the MTV Movie Awards.
Cory loves to donate her time to various charity organizations such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Connecticut Humane Society, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, Gifts of Love and Make-A-Wish Foundation among others, hosting various charity motorcycle rides, auctions and events for them.
She and her husband Jason live in Southington with their three favorite people in the world, their three kids, Austin, 12, Carter, 5 and Gianna, 3, and their dogs Aretha, an American Staffordshire Terrier, they adopted from the CT Humane Society and their new puppy Capone. When she’s not working, you can find her at the Pricechopper or Walmart in town, making her own sauce (she’s 100% Italian and has big hair to prove it), sitting by her pool in the summer time or watching reruns of Star Trek or some other crazy sci-fi show (she is a self-professed nerd at heart and proud of it!)
In case you haven't heard, "Independence Day" is getting a sequel.
Earlier this month, 20th Century Fox announced the film will be released July 3, 2015 — nearly two decades after the original alien invader classic came to theaters in 1996.
The film will pick up 20 years later and is from the mind behind new film "White House Down," Roland Emmerich, also about destroying the D.C., is out this weekend in theaters.
However, the film which made Will Smith a household name won't star the "After Earth" actor.
Emmerich told The New York Daily News they can't afford Smith's price tag because he's just too famous.
"Will Smith can not come back because he's too expensive, but he'd also be too much of a marquee name," said Emmerich. "It would be too much."
No word on who will be in the film, but Emmerich added that nearly half of the sequel's cast is from the original film.
Since 2001's "Ali," Smith brings in at least $20 million per picture . He earned a reported $28 million for 2004's "I, Robot" according to BoxOffice.com.
Vanity Fair reported Smith made an estimated $20 million for "Men in Black III." The film was one of the highest-grossing films of last year earning $624 million worldwide.
