WFOR Reporter Gio Benitez to Join ABC News

WFOR‘s Gio Benitez is leaving the Miami CBS O&O to join ABC News. He will begin at the network early next year as a correspondent in ABC’s New York bureau.

Benitez has been at WFOR since 2008, working first as an investigative producer and then as a reporter. In a memo announcing the hire, ABC News president Ben Sherwood called Benitez “versatile and hard-charging,” praising his “many talents and dynamic storytelling ability.”

Benitez is the latest in a string of ABC News hires from local O&Os. The network hired Alex Perez, Paula Faris and Ginger Zee from WMAQ, the NBC O&O in Chicago, over the last year.
