Gaby Fleischman is a reporter at CBS Miami, where she covers daily breaking and general assignment news in her hometown. She joined CBS4 in March 2013. She is always on the go, chasing down the next big story–and is ready to cover everything from crime to hurricanes.

Before moving back home, Gaby worked for NBC2 in Southwest Florida where she was first on scene at officer-involved shootings and SWAT drug raids, chased down flames of fast-moving wildfires and even wrangled a gator for a live-shot.

Gaby landed her first reporting job at KHQ-TV in Spokane, WA, where she was nicknamed the “resident pit bull” because of her tenacity. Some high-profile reports she covered include an investigation on child sex trafficking and an attempted bombing at a MLK Day parade.

A native of Miami, Florida from Peruvian decent, Gaby speaks fluent Spanish and graduated from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism with a concentration in broadcast journalism and global health. While at Medill, she spent time reporting at WLNS-TV in Lansing, Michigan. She also worked as an anchor and reporter for the Emmy award winning Northwestern News Network.

As an investigative journalist for the Medill Innocence Project, Gaby investigated miscarriages of the criminal justice system focusing on wrongful convictions. She traveled to neighborhoods and correctional facilities statewide—including Texas’ death row—to interview sources for two different cases: a capital punishment case in Texas that was recently taken up for review by the U.S. Supreme Court as a result of her team’s findings, and a Chicago double-murder case for which her team obtained a confession from the guilty party. She wrote several articles on the results of their investigation, featured on AOL Politics Daily and The Huffington Post.

Gaby fell in love with journalism during internships at WFOR and WPLG in South Florida, and WBBM in Chicago. During this time she worked on breaking news stories as well as in-depth investigative segments, including healthcare fraud, dangerous daycare centers and Chicago’s youth gun violence problems.

During her free time Gaby enjoys relaxing on the beach and trying out new restaurants. Most of all, she loves traveling and has made her way to 5 of the 7 continents–including Africa, where she spent several months volunteering at health clinics.
