You can catch Gabe Salazar reporting on Sunrise at 6 a.m and 7 a.m. He joined KYMA in March 2019 as a multimedia journalist.
Gabe is no stranger to the ocean as he was born and raised on Maui, Hawaii and moved to San Diego in 2014 where he was an associate producer and assignment editor at Fox 5 San Diego.
Growing up in Hawaii has led Gabe to foster the “aloha spirit” which is a deep-seated connection with people in the community- which he applies to his reporting in Yuma.
He has a passion for community involvement and outreach programs that promote the idea of going green.
Gabe’s love for journalism stemmed from his college’s Newscene program where he anchored, reported, and produced content for weekly shows that air on the local education program.
He received first place in the San Diego Press Club for a piece he reported on.
When he is not reporting the latest news, Gabe loves trying food from different cultures and joining various golf and tennis clubs.
