Sergio Avila comes to Las Vegas after spending three years of reporting in Tucson, Ariz. While in the Old Pueblo, Sergio learned how deep the connection between news and the community can be.

When Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and 18 others were shot on Jan. 8, 2011 during an event designed for the community to meet their representative, Sergio, along with the entire Tucson news market, covered the tragedy extensively.

That's when he learned how important a reporter's job can be.

Sergio is looking forward to bringing important news to Las Vegas but also wants to become a part of this exciting city.

On a lighter note, Sergio was born and raised in Los Angeles and is a die hard Lakers, Dodgers and USC Football fan. You can find him hanging out wherever the locals are having fun. If you have any great story ideas please don't hesitate to send him an email at
