Greg Mocker joined PIX11 in April 2010 and he has been on the trail of something different ever since.

He began his journalism career in 1995 as a Reporter/ Bureau Chief at KTEN in Ardmore, OK. He moved to WJBF in Augusta, GA and then in 1999 to KOB in Albuquerque, NM. At both stations he served as a Reporter/Anchor and covered City Hall and neighborhood issues. He worked at KPHO in Phoenix, AZ until 2007.

In 2008 Mocker moved to New York to produce and create video content for TurnHere and StudioNow.

At PIX11, Mocker has focused on the MTA and city agencies. He has been accused of being “overly dogged.” He is best known for removing a television from the lake at Prospect Park in Brooklyn.

Mocker graduated from Ohio University bachelor’s degree in Journalism. He lives in Queens.

    Unused MTA MetroCards can help riders in NYC

    A swipe at the turnstyle begins a journey around New York City. When the trip is done, or the visit complete, what happens to all those MetroCards? Regular riders refill the balances on the cards. But millions of dollars every year goes unused and left behind. The NeXT Stop Project says it “seeks to close the inequality gap by providing those in need with access to NYC public transportation one MetroCard at a time.” NeXT Stop Project was founded and […]

    How does your NYC commute compare to this?

    There are many ways to get around the New York City area. Some are more wild than others. Dean Aquino goes from a subway, to a bus, to a subway and then, finally to the 7 train (and it’s all within the same borough). John McGarvey takes a more peaceful approach with a kayak (even if it means he has to change his clothes). New York City Council’s Transportation Committee held a hearing this week to discuss “transit deserts.” The […]

It’s the calm before the storm at their house. “Oh, if he was pitching in 20 minutes I’d be a little stressed out,” Ron Matz laughed.
