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.

Oscar Rincon holds a glass vial containing live bedbugs he uses to train dogs for The Bedbug Inspectors, on July 26, 2010 in the Queens borough of New York. Rincon and partner Jeremy Ecker use dogs to sniff out bedbugs in private homes, apartments and businesses, but leave the exterminating to other companies. The tiny blood suckers specialize in feeding off sleeping bodies and this summer in the Big Apple they're enjoying the pickings of their lives, specialists say. After infesting unprecedented numbers of apartments and offices, the pests have branched out, raiding clothing stores and, notoriously, a Victoria's Secret lingerie outlet on Manhattan's posh Upper East Side.
