Catching up: Yona Gavino is CBS11's newest reporter

Reporter Yona Gavino has joined CBS11 and currently is working the early morning news shift after arriving in May.

Gavino, who most recently spent three years at Milwaukee’s WTMJ-TV, replaces Arezow Doost, who resigned from CBS11 in February. Before that she worked as a “one-man-band bureau reporter” for WLUC-TV in Negaunee, Michigan after serving as a production assistant at WPMI-TV in Mobile, Alabama.

The Florida native has a broadcast journalism degree from the University of West Florida and is a member of the Asian American Journalists Association.

Her bio also says that Gavino “spent years as a competitive ballroom dancer and is a Krav Maga practitioner. Because of this, Yona can dance and fight! But her true joy is storytelling.”
