In 2007, he left Denver for a job at ABC News, serving first as a Chicago-based correspondent, then as a New York-based anchor and correspondent. He was co-anchor of ABC’s national early-morning newscasts, “World News Now” and “America This Morning,” and reported for “Good Morning America,” “World News with Diane Sawyer” and “Nightline,” traveling across the country and overseas to cover breaking news, severe weather, the economy and politics for the network.

Since returning to FOX31 Denver, he’s reported from all over the world, from Afghanistan to Vietnam, and from Europe to Micronesia. He’s told the stories of Air Force reservists at Bagram Air Base, returned to the battlefield with Vietnam vets, and walked with World War II veterans on the beaches of Normandy, the bayfront at Pearl Harbor, and the front lines of Saipan and Tinian.

Hubbard is a 10-time Emmy award winner, including three Emmys for “Best Anchor.” He’s also a two-time winner of the “Best Anchor” award from the Colorado Broadcasters Association. He’s also been honored with a national Edward R.

His career began at KWCH in Wichita, KS, where he attended college at Wichita State University. He also worked as a reporter and anchor at KMBC-TV in Kansas City.

Hubbard is married with two kids and a dog, and lives in Denver, but loves to spend his free time in the mountains.

    DENVER — You could say they’re “gas stations in the sky,” huge Air Force tankers used to refuel fighter jets in midair. Flying them is a tough job, but crucial — so that those fighter pilots can stay in the air longer — and travel farther — as they carry out bombing missions in the fight against ISIS.

    NORFOLK, Va. — It is a massive floating airport — in the middle of the ocean. Strange place for land-locked Coloradans. But for seven months at a time, the USS Eisenhower is home for up to 5,200 crew members, including a 24-year-old from Castle Rock. “I’m a pretty adaptive person. The only thing that was really miserable was the heat over in the Middle East,” said Britt Dunaway. His job on the ship is to refuel the 70 or so aircraft […]

    AURORA, Colo. — Ninety-four years is a long time to live by any measure. But Tom Petso of Aurora seemed invincible — like he’d keep on going forever. After all, he had survived Pearl Harbor.
