Two-time Emmy Award Journalist Gray Hall joined the 6abc Action News team in December 2015. Gray previously worked at WWBT-TV in Richmond, Virginia, where he anchored the highest-rated weekday morning newscast for five years, and was also a reporter for the station's "On Your Side" consumer franchise. Gray took great pride in not only delivering the news, but educating the community about the latest scams and frauds. He also had the opportunity to be an adjunct professor at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Before joining WWBT-TV, Gray was a reporter and fill-in anchor at WTVJ in Miami, Florida. During his time with WTVJ, Gray covered a number of major stories that included the Miami mortgage foreclosure crisis, and Fidel Castro's resignation as Cuba's president. Gray also spent four years at WCBD-TV in Charleston, South Carolina, where he was the weekend anchor/reporter. While in Charleston, Gray was awarded the Green Eyeshade Award for a feature story. He began his broadcasting career as a production assistant for KTVT, the CBS affiliate in Dallas, Texas. His first on-air job happened shortly after at WABG in Greenville, Mississippi. He was a "one man band" as well as the weekend anchor. He shot, edited, wrote and produced his own stories and newscasts.
Gray was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, and earned his bachelor's degree from Dillard University in New Orleans, Louisiana. While in college, he played tennis and was a member of the Melton Foundation; an organization that allowed him to act as a global citizen by addressing and tackling global challenges while traveling to India, China and Chile. He is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated.
