Ushery was a regular fixture in the 30 Rock studios of WNBC throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the times of unrest that followed the murder of George Floyd, providing viewers with the most recent news while frequently cutting to daily press conferences led by federal, state, and local officials.

During this period, he also focused on the interactions between law enforcement and communities of color, including exclusive interviews with senior NYPD officers.

Ushery obtained an exclusive interview with longtime friend and former Congressional coworker Charles Rangel after the recent passing of Civil Rights icon John Lewis.

Rangel talked about marching with Lewis from Selma, Alabama, to Montgomery, Alabama, and provided personal reflections on their collaborative work that spanned more than 50 years.

In recent years, Ushery also reported from Houston following the death of former President George H.W. Bush, from Orlando following the deadly Pulse nightclub shooting, and the White House for the transition between the outgoing Obama and incoming Trump teams. 

He covered Pope Francis’ 2015 visit to Washington D.C. and New York City live from the parade routes. He joined the station in 2003 following a decade at WABC-TV, where he rose from reporter to anchor.
