That's a huge jump! Congratulations, Paul!

Davison native Paul Gerke is moving from the warmth of Arizona to 30 Rockefeller Center in New York City to work at NBC News headquarters as a news anchor/host.

In his social media announcement, he credits his roots here in Genesee County. He started to pursue his dream career working with DTV at Davison High School and then used those connections to work as a tech locally at ABC 12.

As most media people do, he kept his moving boxes at the ready and ended up working in Alpena and then Idaho, Florida and Arizona.

Genesee County is proud of you, Paul!
