Corry, a former Press Club of Long Island (PCLI) president and board member who gave up his post last month after 12 years of service, is Newsday’s online editor for local news.

He’s currently the co-chair of the SPJ Region 1 Spring Conference and has served in multiple SPJ capacities from Region 1 Director, PCLI president, corresponding secretary and VP-Print to student chapter president at Stony Brook University and St. John’s University.

He was named Regional Director of the Year in 2005 and won the Phil Spahn Award presented by PCLI for his outstanding service to journalism in 2005. Corry was named a Long Island Business News 40 under 40 nominee and currently sits on the board of the Buskin Committee for Campus Journalism at Stony Brook, where he attended school.

Corry has served as executive producer at News 12 Interactive and as the editor of Long Island Business News.

He plans to bring communication, innovation and independence to SPJ with his potential election.

I want to bridge the communication gap between chapters so they can better share ideas, while offering a fresh, yet experienced voice to the board, he said.

Corry hopes chapters can develop more effective websites and vibrant social media initiatives.

My varied experience in print, TV, online and mobile journalism allows me to understand and quickly respond to the challenges our industry and our organization face, said Corry.
