As a journalist with Spectrum News 13, Curtis McCloud is a dual threat. He commands the weekend morning anchor desk and digs deeps to get answers to local issues as an investigative reporter.
You can watch Curtis every weekend morning starting at 6, but make sure that you check-in with News 13 during the week. As one of the original Spectrum News 13 Watchdog investigative reporters, Curtis McCloud has made an impact covering major stories like the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trail in Minneapolis, Wisconsin and tackling a number of important issues across our communities including guardianship abuse, and uncovering the racial disparity that exists within Central Florid home lending.
Throughout his career as a seasoned award-winning investigative journalist, Curtis has covered some very memorable stories working in newsrooms all around the country including Virginia, Tennessee, Washington, D.C and Georgia. His favorite is probably a story about saving Cedar Grove, a historic African-American slave cemetery in Tennessee. Through a series of in-depth reports, Curtis help launch a region-wide initiative to clean up the forgotten cemetery. He took concerns to city and state leaders, who stepped in to help find out why this cemetery was forgotten and who was responsible for it. This is the kind of work Curtis has loved since he was in third grade, and he’s been crafting his skills ever since.
Curtis and his wife, Sydney have two young boys. When he’s not on the air, he likes to spend time with his family and friends and as a self-proclaimed foodie, he enjoys trying new restaurants.
