Alan Gionet’s heart belongs to Colorado, where he finds immense joy in both living and working. With over 30 years of experience in the news industry, he has made a significant impact in the field.

His journey in journalism began in a small market in Mississippi, where he handled every aspect of news production, from lugging around the camera and video recording deck to shooting, writing, and editing stories for the newscast. Later, he anchored and reported in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where his exposé of the state’s foster care system’s deplorable conditions led to stronger enforcement for the welfare of children.

Alan’s investigative skills also shone during his time in Providence, Rhode Island, where he exposed tax breaks for non-profit organizations. Returning to CBS4 in the early 1990s, he reported extensively on forest fires and brought to light critical information about the Storm King Mountain firefighters’ tragic fate due to lack of weather updates. He also uncovered the issue of registered sex offenders not residing where they claimed.

During his stint in Jacksonville, Florida, as the main anchor and nightside managing editor, Alan faced hurricanes and the 2000 election controversy, revealing voting irregularities in Duval County. His reporting on endangered North Atlantic right whales brought national attention to the species’ plight, with only an estimated 300 whales remaining.

His excellence in newscasts earned numerous awards, including Emmys and Edward R. Murrow Awards, and he personally received Heartland Regional Emmy Awards, recognizing his outstanding work as a top anchor and for his innovative “Good Question” reporting. His accolades encompass a wide range of categories, from spot news to feature stories.

In the 2000s, Alan returned to CBS4, reuniting with his beloved Colorado alongside his wife and four children. His passion for journalism is rivaled only by his love for fatherhood. Apart from his professional pursuits, Alan dedicates time to extensive reading, playing the blues harmonica, engaging in hockey matches, and pursuing regular runs. Additionally, he challenges himself each year to conquer more of Colorado’s majestic 14ers.

Alan’s commitment to CBS4 stems from his belief that it is one of the finest places to work in the nation due to its high-quality reporting, videography, and a strong sense of teamwork. He cherishes the camaraderie of the talented and caring people at the network, who share his love for the beautiful state of Colorado.
