Wright Gazaway

Wright is an Anchor, Multimedia Journalist, and Investigative Reporter joining the news team in August of 2016. Before joining the team at WTOC, Wright spent two years at WALB in Albany, GA as a May 2014 graduate from the University of Georgia. He graduated from the Grady College with a Bachelor of Arts in Digital and Broadcast Journalism. In two years at WALB, he was nominated for an AP award as the best reporter or anchor in the state. In addition, he was a two-year letterman for the Georgia Bulldogs football team as a longsnapper. He was named to the Athletic Director's Honor Roll three times and was an SEC Academic Honor Roll member in 2013. “Being able to be a microphone for the community and hold elected leaders and other stewards of tax dollars accountable is one of my biggest passions in this job,” Wright said. “I love telling the untold stories for people who need help.” Wright was born in Birmingham, AL but moved to metro Atlanta a year later. In his free-time, he loves to play golf, run, spend time outside, and get to know new people. He comes from a big family with three sisters, two brothers, a brother-in-law, a sister-in-law and three nieces. Shoot him a story idea if you have one!
