Photojournalist & Reporter
Gibby Parra

A native of Arizona, Gibby's first job in broadcasting was in his hometown of Yuma. Still a junior in high school, he started there in 1989 as a tape operator for KYEL-TV. While the age of "tape" is long over, Gibby has evolved with the times. He became a photographer for KYEL and then moved to KOLD in Tucson after graduating from Yuma High School.

He moved to Phoenix to join 3TV as a photojournalist in 1994 -- he had just turned 21 -- and became an integral part of the station's flagship show, "Good Morning Arizona." He's seen Arizona's Family through nearly three decades of growth and transformation, including the merger with CBS 5.

While he's still working behind the camera, he's also in front of it just as much now, reporting for "Good Morning Arizona" on 3TV and CBS 5. Gib covers everything from the day's breaking news to the fun, light-hearted features Arizona's Family loves to see.

"My mom said, 'If you love what you do, then you'll never work a day in your life.' I have not worked a day in my life," Gibby said on his 25th anniversary with Arizona's Family.
