Q McCray is a native of Washington DC who joined WJLA in July 2016. He's a seasoned award-winning journalist with more than a decade of experience. You can see him reporting live on the biggest news stories of the day Monday through Friday on ABC 7 News and NewsChannel 8.
Q comes to us from WOIO Cleveland 19 where he anchored the morning and noon newscasts. Prior to that, he reported for ABC 7 Eyewitness News in Los Angeles. He started his career with WALA FOX 10 in Mobile, AL, followed by WSVN in Miami and WFTV in Orlando.
Hurricane Katrina, Space Shuttle Atlantis' final launch, Trayvon Martin, Southern California firestorms and earthquakes, the Casey Anthony trial, Cop Killer Chris Dorner and Michael Jackson's death are just a few of the national headlines Q has covered firsthand.
Though he lived a good portion of his life in the Golden State, and attended the University of Southern California where he majored in Broadcast Journalism and minored in French and International Relations, Q was born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Montreal, Canada (he speaks French fluently).
When he's not on camera, Q is a husband and father of two toddlers. They live in Arlington. He also keeps his investors happy through real estate acquisitions.
Q loves meeting new people, so don't be afraid to say "hi" when you see him around, especially if you have a story idea.
