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 currently lives in Queens.

  • New Yorkers want to hop off the ‘The Bug Train’

    NEW YORK (PIX11) – Bedbugs always get our attention. After a few recent appearances of bedbugs on subways and trains, some elected leaders are proposing some new regulations for the MTA. The authority would have to notify riders within 24 hours of the creatures being spotted on a train, bus, or at a subway station. The public would also be told what steps were taken to remedy the problem. “This is an important issue that the MTA has to take […]

    Free transfer set to expire between G train and J/M lines in Brooklyn

    Riders and elected leaders are asking the MTA to continue a free, above-ground transfer for all MetroCard holders. But the MTA does not plan to reconsider the decision. The free connection was made available between the Broadway stop on the G line and the J/M Lorimer stop. The stops are a short distance from each other in Bushwick. The MTA offered the free transfer during a month-long construction project on the G line (which is set to run through September […]

    Neighbors speak up about noisy trains

    Having a train located in area makes getting around easier. It also makes for a noisy neighbor. Some neighbors and business owners in Brooklyn along Stillwell Avenue are speaking up. They say since a track project, the noise from the D train has been louder (especially as the train motors around a curve at 86th Street). The New York State Senate and Assembly have both passed a bill from Assemblymember Bill Colton that would require the MTA to publicly report […]

    Project begins at busy NYC and NJ bus terminal

    The bus terminal on the Manhattan side of the George Washington Bridge will remain open while more than $180 million worth of renovations are made. But some of the signs at the busiest entrances were not easy to see. Most of the regular entrances are closed. The station can be accessed by a staircase on the corner of 179th Street and Fort Washington Avenue. New Jersey Transit service is continuing from the terminal. On the first day of the work, […]

    Cyclists document activity during NYPD operation

    Share the road is a common refrain in New York City. Drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists are always on the move. NYPD has been conducting a targeted operation called “Operation Safe Cycle.” It wraps up on Tuesday, August 26th. Officers are enforcing traffic laws. But some cyclists believe bikes are being treated differently. Some riders have created a twitter page tracking the operation. People are posting information about locations and safety rules (and the hashtag #OpSafeCycle). Organizer and bicyclist Keegan Stephan […]

  • Mocker talks to drivers who got tickets for legal parking

    Check your windshield and email for NYC traffic tickets

    When the folded, orange envelope appears on the windshield of the vehicle, you know there’s trouble. Parking tickets are a fact of life (and driving) in New York City. A bill will be introduced at Thursday’s New York City Council meeting that would also send an email to drivers who receive a parking ticket. An actual paper ticket would continue to be placed on the vehicle. The city already has a program in place that sends emails to companies who […]

    Self-appointed Jaywalking Referee calls out NYC pedestrians

    It doesn’t take long to find a jaywalker in New York City. People cross when the signs say don’t walk and walkers regularly dart from in between cars in the middle of the road. Two New York City residents,  Jaehyuk Choi and Mario Garza, had an idea to get people’s attention about the dangers of jaywalking and the injury statistics. They created the “Jaywalking Referee” and hired an actor who has appeared at some busy intersections this summer. NYPD is […]

More than 68 different versions currently exist within the system. The new maps have a coverage radius of about 12 blocks and provide more site-specific information to that station. The maps are located near some of the entrances and exists. Some riders would like to see more information available at the platform […]

    Until September 2, 1014, there’s no G train from Long Island City, Queens to Nassau Avenue in Brooklyn. Shuttle buses are serving those stations. The MTA is monitoring riders and demand and the location of signs. Crews are doing repair to the tunnel that connects Queens and Brooklyn on the G. In the first week, neighbors, drivers and some elected leaders asked the MTA to revisit the holding areas for the shuttle buses. The MTA says this closure for 35 […]
