A Fresno reporter considered one of the best at covering politics and the courts is leaving for the Twin Cities.

Corin Hoggard, ABC 30’s ace reporter since 2005, is headed to Minneapolis.

Hoggard’s daughter attends the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus.

“Next Friday will be my last day to tell the stories of the Central Valley on ABC30,” Hoggard wrote on his Facebook page on Wednesday. “I don’t know how to say goodbye. I don’t know how to express how much all of you and this place mean to me. I didn’t want to write this post because it’s incredibly hard for me. This community embraced me as one of its own and trusted me to do a thorough job sharing difficult emotions with sensitivity.”

Hoggard said that he has reported nearly 4,000 stories during his time in Fresno.

He did not announce if he will continue working in television.

A Midwest Return

The move to the Midwest is a return home for Hoggard.

Hoggard grew up in Fargo, North Dakota. He attended the University of Houston, where he worked as a producer for the ABC-owned-and-operated station prior to coming to Fresno (also a network O&O).

His brother, with his family, live there.

“We already have a network of friends in the Twin Cities, including the twins who were my best friends growing up. So as hard as it is to leave everything behind, we’re excited to make the jump! We know we’ll love it as soon as winter goes away,” Hoggard wrote.

His friends and colleagues plan a going-away party later this week.

[Update, 12/22/2022: the original story reported that Hoggard and his sister-in-law were originally from the Twin Cities. They are both from Fresno.]

The move is expected next month.
