Max Cohan is a New Yorker, born and bred. He joined the Local News 8 team in June 2018, just weeks after graduating from the Newhouse School at Syracuse University with a B.S. in broadcast journalism.
During his time at Syracuse, Max worked for several campus radio and television stations, covering everything from the Super Bowl to boat shows. Max spent time anchoring, producing, reporting and even hosting during his time on the hill. Working on shows, such as the award-winning Mornings on the Hill and ESPN’s ACC Network Extra, Max left ‘Cuse with tons of hands-on experience.
While not covering stories, Max likes to spend time getting active. A rower in high school, Max spends a lot of time exercising, whether it be at the gym or just going for a hike. In his downtime, Max is always watching sports. A die-hard New York sports fan (Mets, Jets, Rangers and Knicks), he can often be found cheering for his teams, regardless of their current standing.
Although he was raised on the east coast, Max is no stranger to life at altitude. Max has spent a lot of time traveling the country and spent holidays in Colorado every year since he was 4. Max is eager to learn more about his new home and the people that live there. Don’t be shy if you see him around!
