Gabriela Vidal is a Multiskilled Journalist/Reporter and joined the CBS Colorado news team in July 2023. Gaby is a Chicago native and graduated from the University of Southern California. She is thrilled to call Colorado her new home.

Before joining CBS Colorado, Gaby reported in St. Louis for the CBS affiliate KMOV. While working in Missouri, she received a Mid-American Emmy nomination for her work in live reporting for a variety of breaking news stories in the region. Two of the stories there that left a strong impact on her were the 2022 school shooting at Central Visual and Performing Arts High School in South St. Louis and a profile of the families who lost their lives in the Edwardsville Amazon warehouse tornado collapse.

In her free time, you can find Gaby exploring Colorado's beautiful hiking trails and parks, walking her Corgi pup, and trying new restaurant spots. She is so excited to be living in a city that offers both city and nature within a short drive. Gaby is also a huge sports fan (soccer and basketball especially) and cannot wait to check off watching each of the city's teams off her list.
