I am Eric Gonzales and I am very excited about doing news here in Boise. I come here from San Antonio, Texas where I reported for KENS 5 for the past 2 years. Texas is a lot like Idaho with very nice people and the country feel.
Before that I worked at WSB in Atlanta and lived there for more than 10 years. I have family in both San Antonio and Atlanta so I do get a chance to go back to both cities. I started in NEWS as a photographer at KEYE in Austin Texas, another very cool place to be. SXSW and Eeyores birthday are a blast.
I also have had other ventures outside of news. I have my private pilot's license, an expired Texas real estate license, I am a property manager and I owned my own Mexican restaurant. I enjoy traveling and have been all over Europe but lately I have gravitated to warm beaches in the Bahamas and the Cayman islands. I box and I run about 21 miles a week. My favorite teams are the Houston Texans and whoever plays the Dallas Cowboys.
I am passionate about being a reporter and look forward to coming to KBOI every day. If you have a good story idea, I would be honored to tell it. My email is email@example.com
