Maclin who began his career first hosting programs at around the age of 13 years-old at local churches, venues and by participating in the community, moved on to become a sought-after personality who ended up working as an on-air radio personality for KFTH 107.1, which led to him being promoted and working as program/news director at WLOK at the age of 18, the youngest in Memphis.
As he continued his growth, Corey Maclin became a renowned voice for Memphis radio, TV commercials and a sports anchor for ABC24 now Local24, and later moved on to politics while still promoting wrestling and working with the likes of Jerry King Lawler.
Corey Maclin leaves behind a wife, Carmela Maclin, and their six children.
