The end of an era: Joe Gazin retires from 3News

Gazin signed off for the last time after more than 43 years of working in the industry.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — It is the end of an era. After more than 43 years of reporting the news for South Texas, Joe Gazin retired Friday. 

Whether covering some of the most dominant stories of the day, such as the major hurricanes starting with Hurricane Allen in 1980, the death of Selena, or even through some of the more recent impacts of COVID-19 and winter storms, Joe Gazin has been the calm voice of reason when we have needed it most. 

"Joe's legacy at 3News will be that of consistency...someone that was always known and trusted to bring you the news of the day, or the moment," said fellow anchor and reporter Rudy Treviño. "To have this kind of dedication, to work in one market for 43 years is an amazing feat."

Joe Gazin at KIII-TV 3’s final broadcast will be tonight at 6p. He’s been doing this thing - at channel 3 - for longer...
