After joining NBC News in 2012, Gutierrez was based in Atlanta for several years but covered major stories around the world. He was part of the NBC Nightly News team that earned an Alfred I. duPont–Columbia University Award for its coverage of the 2013 tornado that tore through Moore, Oklahoma. [4]

Since then, he has reported on historic floods, wildfires, riots, and mass murders.

He has also covered a slew of high-profile police-involved shootings, including those that drew national attention in Ferguson, North Charleston, Baton Rouge, and Charlotte. In 2016, he was among the first reporters on the scene of the Orlando nightclub shooting - and weeks later, the targeted killing of five officers in Dallas. [4]

During the 2016 presidential campaign, he joined NBC’s political team covering the Republican primaries. In 2017, he reported from Charlottesville, Virginia, after a deadly white nationalist rally. Then, he covered back-to-back-to-back hurricanes: Hurricane Harvey in Texas; Hurricane Irma in Florida; and Maria in Puerto Rico. His reporting on Hurricane Maria’s devastating aftermath was featured in “Powerless,” an NBC Nightly Film that was among the network’s most-viewed digital documentaries of the year. [4]

Internationally, Gutierrez has reported on terrorist attacks in London, Paris, and Brussels. He’s traveled to an earthquake in Chile, a hurricane in Haiti, and a volcanic eruption in Guatemala. He’s reported extensively from Cuba and was in Havana when the U.S. reestablished its embassy in 2015. At the Panamanian border, he told the story of migrants trying to enter the U.S. through Central America and he’s spent time in Mexico covering the recapture of the world’s most-wanted drug lord, El Chapo. In 2019, he reported live from Venezuela as tensions ramped up amid a spiraling economic and political crisis. [4]

During the Trump administration, Gutierrez is among the network journalists who have spent the most time at the southern U.S. border, speaking with both Central American migrants and United States Border Patrol agents. He’s filed reports on immigration from cities throughout Guatemala and Mexico, including Tapachula, Tijuana, Matamoros, Reynosa, and Juárez. [4]

In 2020, he reported from New York City, one of the early coronavirus hotspots, telling the heartbreaking stories of the first victims and the struggles of frontline workers in New York City and beyond. He was also the network’s lead correspondent on the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the social unrest that followed.[4]

Gutierrez came to NBC News from KHOU in Houston, where he worked as the station’s City Hall reporter. Before that, he was a weekend morning anchor and reporter at WJRT-TV, the ABC station in Flint, Michigan. He regularly produced and hosted the station’s public affairs program in addition to covering the state legislature and the auto industry. His first on-air job was at WBOY-TV, the NBC affiliate in Clarksburg, West Virginia, where he anchored weekend newscasts.[4]
