Gio Benitez is an ABC News correspondent and host of Fusion's edition of "Nightline" based in New York. He reports for all ABC News programs and platforms including "Good Morning America," "World News Tonight with David Muir," "Nightline" and "20/20." Benitez is an award-winning reporter and has covered a wide range of stories for the network, including the Orlando nightclub massacre, the Boston Marathon bombing, the search for escaped convicts from a New York maximum security prison, controversial religious freedom laws that were deemed discriminatory in Indiana and Arkansas, the Alabama child held hostage underground in an eight-day standoff, the American mother stuck in a Mexican jail, and nearly every major snow storm that swept the nation during the winters of 2013 and 2014. Before joining ABC News in 2013, he was a reporter for WFOR, the CBS owned-and-operated TV station in Miami, where he covered the 2012 Presidential election and reported extensively on the Trayvon Martin case. In January 2010, Benitez traveled to Haiti to cover relief efforts following the devastating earthquake. His return flight to Miami was turned into a rescue mission, as he traveled with injured Haitian evacuees to the island of CuraƧao. In June 2009, he was the first reporter to ever shoot a TV story entirely with an iPhone. Benitez is the recipient of two regional Emmy Awards and is an eight-time nominee. Most notably, he was nominated for his investigative series on alleged police brutality which resulted in two Miami officers being forced to turn in their guns and badges. Before becoming a reporter, Benitez was an investigative producer at WFOR and worked on stories involving Medicare fraud, public safety and government corruption. He started at the station as an Emma L. Bowen Foundation work-study scholar. His first on-air job was actually on the radio, on the nationally-syndicated consumer electronics show, "Into Tomorrow with Dave Graveline." Benitez was born and raised in Miami and fluent in both English and Spanish. He is a graduate of Florida International University's School of International and Public Affairs with a degree in sociology and anthropology. « Read Less
