Host, The Isiah Factor Uncensored

Isiah Carey started as a general assignment reporter for FOX 26 News but has since embraced his role as the host of his signature news program, Isiah Factor Uncensored. Originally from Baton Rouge, La., he caught the TV bug at a very young age. In fact, he made his debut in front of the camera at the age of five, on a weekly local segment called Thought for the Day on WVLA-TV.

But it wasn't until 1978 when as a third-grade student, Isiah realized that he wanted to be a reporter on TV. That's when a local television journalist spoke to his class, and inspired Isiah to contact a Baton Rouge TV station, asking for a summer job. He got the job and worked at that station every summer, for no credit, until he went away to college.

In college, Isiah continued his pursuit of a broadcasting career. Before graduating from Southern University in Baton Rouge, he was already a news anchor and a reporter for the city's WXOK-AM radio.

By 1990, Isiah was the News Director and anchor at KQXL-AM and WYCT-FM, where he managed a small news staff. That same year, Isiah got his first real TV job as a reporter and Public Affairs talk show host at WVLA. In 1991, he re-joined WAFB-TV, the same station he shadowed as a third grader. He remained there for four years. He joined KRIV-TV in September 2001.

Throughout his broadcasting career, Isiah has won several awards, including an Emmy and an award from the Society of Professional Journalists.
