Cody was born and raised in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Career: Cody’s first job out of college took him 120 miles north to Douglas, Wyoming, where he was the sports editor at the Douglas Budget for nearly four years. While in eastern Wyoming, Cody earned every statewide sports-writing award, including being named the state’s inaugural Young Journalist of the Year. From there, Cody took over the one-man sports department at The Baytown Sun in east Houston, where he covered 13 high schools and a junior college. There, he earned the Associated Press’ top sports section in the state. After a two-year stint in southeast Texas, Cody moved back to his hometown where he took on a radio-producer role. In 2016, Cody accepted a sports storyteller position at the Lansing State Journal, where he covered Michigan State University athletics. His story, “Finding Charles Rogers,” was named the AP and Michigan Press Association Sports Feature of the Year in 2017. Personal: Cody and his wife, Emilee, live in Cheyenne, Wyoming with their slobbery, yet adorable, bloodhounds, Ozzy and Nola. Cody grew up playing baseball, eventually earning a full-ride college scholarship in middle-of-nowhere Nebraska. It was a short-lived dream. Turns out, his best days on the field were behind him. In his free time, Cody enjoys traveling around the country to attend sporting events. He was a University of Wyoming football season-ticket holder for nearly three decades, not missing a game in Laramie until he moved to Texas in 2013. Now, fall Saturdays are reserved for screaming at the television.
