RIO RANCHO, N.M. — If there’s anything to suspicions of DNA leading into an offspring’s talent, this may be a good case for it.
Clare Moots, a 2017 graduate of Rio Rancho High School, is the daughter of two longtime television talents — one behind the camera, the other in front of it. Carey Moots, a graduate of Cibola High School and Eastern New Mexico University, met Sumiko Corley, a graduate of Pepperdine University, when the two worked at KOB-TV in Albuquerque in the early 1990s.
Nearly 30 years later, the couple is still working, this time for NBC. There’s no telling when the phone may ring, summoning one or both of them for a news event in the West or Southwest.
