Thanks for logging on and thank you for watching News Channel 3 Daybreak!
Make yourself at home and while you're clicking way and checking out our website, browse over to our multiple traffic cameras.
From our Hilton Memphis Cam that gives you a great live shot of Poplar Ave and Interstate 240, our Comcast camera that gives you a live look at Bill Morris Pkwy just at Kirby Pkwy to our Tin Man cam that shows you instant updates on what's going on at Interstate 40 at Whitten Rd. Also on our website, you can find the TDOT cameras I use every morning on News Channel 3 Daybreak.
The TDOT cameras are positioned in numerous locations in Memphis, including both I -55 and the I-40 bridge that spans over the mighty Mississippi River. They're also located in Arkansas giving you a prefect view of the traffic over in West Memphis. We have a link to the Mississippi Department of Transportation website that offers continuous camera shots of heavily traveled roadways that, you as commuters, use everyday!
As for me, I'm Corie Ventura. Traffic reporter and assignment editor for News Channel 3. I grew up in Florida and graduated from Florida State University with a bachelor degree in Communication. What you might not know about me is that I also studied at Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi and ran on the DSU's Cross Country Team.
I joined News Channel 3 in 2000 and spent the majority of my time behind the cameras. I worked in numerous positions ranging from production, editing, news gathering, research, sending crews to breaking news and our Live at 9 show that broadcasts live from Peabody Place in downtown Memphis. I joined the Daybreak team to report the traffic in May, 2007.
I hope you'll tune in to News Channel 3 Daybreak every morning so I can save you time on your morning commute and help steer you around the hot spots.
