Gary Nelson has been a member of the CBS4 News team since September, 1992, coming on board in the days following Hurricane Andrew, a storm that ripped a swath of devastation across our community and ripped the roof off Gary’s house.

Gary’s colorful style and memorable story-telling ability have helped CBS4 News stand apart in South Florida television. It is a style Gary has been developing and sharing over 42 years of broadcast news experience. While Gary has lived and worked his entire life in Florida – beginning in his hometown of Gainesville – his many assignments across the United States and overseas have contributed to the numerous Emmy and Associated Press awards he has received for everything from spot news to feature stories to investigative reporting. He has also won the Edward R. Murrow award.

Born and raised in Gainesville, Gary, of course, bleeds Orange and Blue as a big fan of the Florida Gators. Gary enjoys fishing, scrabble and quality time with his wife, Mary Jane. His son, Niles, is a cryptologist/linguist for United States Navy Security, who reads, writes and speaks Chinese.
