Former El Paso Weathercaster Jim Gamble Dies

Jim Gamble, a former weathercaster for El Paso ABC-affiliate KVIA, died yesterday from pancreatic cancer. He was 60.

Gamble was a weathercaster in the El Paso market for 20 years. He spent 10 years at KVIA, five years at NBC-affiliate KTSM and five years at CBS-affiliate KDBC.

Roy Ortega, a former KVIA anchor, recalled meeting Gamble for the first time in the 1980s. “I was actually there when he walked into the newsroom for the very first time,” he told the El Paso Times. “He had an audition. He had a natural talent for being on the air.”
