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.

    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 […]
