Early life, family

Gabe was born on 17 January 1980, in Miami, Florida USA. There’s no data about his parents – Gabe has never mentioned their names, age or occupations, or posted any photos with them as most celebrities (and actually most people) do on Father’s Day or Mother’s Day. He tries to keep the information about his family low-key. He grew up in the same town he was born in – his family never moved to another city.


Gabe attended a local high school in Miami, though there is no precise information about the particular school he matriculated from. Gabe graduated from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University with a double major in Political Science, studying American politics, international relations, comparative politics, political theory and methods there. Among Northwestern University alumni are George R.R. Martin, the author of the book series “The Song of Ice and Fire” which were adapted by HBO for the TV series “Game of Thrones”, Younghee Lee, the chief marketing officer at Samsung Electronics, and Mike Wilbon, the co-host of “Pardon the Interruption”.

Even though Gabe was young and had less experience than his colleagues when he started working as a broadcaster and a reporter, he managed to show his best while covering several important situations and event, happening in America and in the world. He reported about senator Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign back in 2016, he also appeared in the reports about the GM recall and  the Indiana Religious Freedom law. He was on-air when teachers walked out for protests in Oklahoma, and the devastation which Hurricane Florence caused throughout the North and the South Carolinas. As for the channels he worked at, he started his career as a weekend morning reporter and anchor at WJRT. Then in 2012 he became a City Hall reporter when he joined NBC News at KHOU.

He woke up famous after his brilliant reports on earthquake in Chile, the terrorist attack in Brussels and Paris, and Haiti hurricane. He also achieved the approval of a larger audience when he reported from the historic gay marriage which happened in San Francisco. Gabe now works as an Atlanta-based correspondent at NBC, and also reports for NBCLatins.

Gabe is a member of the NAHJ (National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Investigating Reporters and Editors).

As for 2019, one can see him as a correspondent in such political TV series as “TODAY”, “Weekend TODAY”, “NBC Nightly News” and “MSNBC Live”. He previously appeared in such TV series as “Sunday Today with Willie Geist”, “Politics Nation with Al Sharpton”, “The Daily Rundown” and “NewsNation with Tamron Hall”.

On-Air Failure

Gabe once got into a very uncomfortable situation when he was reporting live – he delivered a shot of senate candidate Roy Moore’s sexual assault scandal and started fumbling, repeating words and pronouncing a lot of ‘ums’ during his speech. The audience apparently felt really uncomfortable, since many people at once expressed their concern on Twitter for Gabe’s state. He answered in a short period of time that he had the hit of exhaustion at the worst possible time. Some people suggested he could have had a mini-stroke, though Gabe later let  everybody know that he was fine and hadn’t had any stroke. His week before that live shot was way too busy, so later he also explained: ‘Nothing a night’s sleep won’t cure. Thanks again for well wishes!’, he wrote on his Twitter. The audience was very supportive and didn’t shame him for this mild failure. Gabe has always been travelling a lot and covered multiple live shots, so his colleagues were very supportive too, saying many of them also had such cases of weakness, when they were lost for words, couldn’t finish a sentence, or lost the red line of the conversation with the person whom they were interviewing at the moment.


In 2009 Gabe was nominated as “Best Reporter” by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters, and which he won. Gabe was also rewarded with an Emmy for his investigation into one the largest mortgage schemes of several banks in the state, and was also honored by the Associated Press for investigative reporting and breaking news coverage. Later in 2013, Gutierrez and his team got to the scene of destroyed lands of Moore, Oklahoma; the city was almost completely in ruins after a tornado, and Gutierrez went live with his reports for NBC Nightly News. The broadcast helped him to earn the prestigious award from the respected Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University for excellence in journalism, along with all the members of Gabe’s team.

Personal life, wife Erin K. Peterson Gutierrez

Gabe has been married for almost 15 years to Erin K. Peterson, since 1 August 2004, after four years of dating. A daughter of Mark A. Peterson and Marcie Peterson, Erin is a journalist, just like her husband, and works for WXIA-TV. She often writes articles along with Jeremy Campbell, another investigative reporter from Atlanta.

Even though they both have multiple nieces and nephews (mostly from Erin’s side, since Erin has two siblings), and also take a lot of pictures with the kids of their friends and look very happy and excited at those photos, they don’t have their own kids.

Hobbies and interests

Gabe loves theatre and attends performances as often as he can afford with his tight schedule. Recently he attended Centro De Bellas Artes Luis A. Ferré to see the Hamilton musical in Puerto Rico. Gabe and Erin like the Netflix TV series “House of Cards”, they eagerly waited for the last season to come.

Gabe and Erin have two dogs, chihuahuas – their names are Char and Harvey.

They both enjoy skiing and snowboarding, spending their spare time in the mountains with their friends and family.

Social media presence

Gabe has an Instagram account which he mostly uses as a platform on which he shares his opinion on the floods, wildfires, catastrophes, protests, etc. – he rarely posts personal photos, but complements his working activities, using it as a journalistic tool. The account has around 2,600 followers. He also has a Twitter account which is read by more than 11,600 followers, on which he shares more NBC news about situations of severe weather.


Gabe has dark brown hair and brown eyes, he doesn’t wear beard or mustache. His height, weight and vital statistics are unavailable. As for clothing style, he prefers casual, but formal clothes when necessary; he always wears light-colored shirts, a blazer and classical trousers when he appears in front of the camera.

Net worth

Gabe’s net worth is estimated by sources to be over $2 million, the main source of income being his job. He doesn’t have any commercial contracts or any other projects he organized or created to earn more money, dedicating his time to his work at NBC. His yearly income as a senior journalist is estimated to be up to $100,000.
