Gio Battaglia

Gio Battaglia started at News 8 as an intern right as his final semester began at SUNY Brockport in the fall of 2022. Two months in, near the final weeks of the semester, Gio found his niche on the digital side of things after trying his hand at a bunch of different departments. A month before graduation, Gio secured a position as a Digital Content Producer.

Gio is a Rochester native and is excited to begin his career at News 8 with such a welcoming team. While not in the newsroom, Gio enjoys singing at open mic nights, shopping, spending time with friends, and obsessing over the latest news from Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.
