Sergio Cruel, a self-starter and Philadelphia native, brings eight years of on-air journalism experience from several top markets. In Rochester, Sergio hopes to connect with and help the community by telling the stories that matter to them.

Sergio landed his first on-air job in 2015 with "Chasing News" on Fox 5 NY. Sergio stood out as a multimedia journalist for his ability to pitch, edit, produce and tell stories in his own unique style. He later joined the Fox 29 News team in his hometown of Philadelphia, where he worked on special projects dealing with gun violence, missing persons and community-driven stories.

Sergio's favorite story was when he used the power of journalism to locate a missing person. When the story aired, it reached over two million people on Facebook. This helped a wife find her husband and get the closure she needed.

Outside the newsroom, Sergio keeps busy by working out, face-timing his siblings, studying various topics and exploring what Rochester is all about.
