A NewsNation reporter has been praised widely for his coverage of the Gabby Petito case. Brian Entin is providing regular updates related to the shocking case of the Long Island native. His Twitter page is filled with videos, information, and quotes directly from the authorities who are working continuously to solve the mystery. It has been said Entin is reporting live from Gabby's boyfriend Brian Laundrie's house for over a week. The 23-year-old man is missing for more than a week.

The most recent share from his Twitter page is a clip of him talking to journalist Ashleigh Banfield. The caption of the video, which has been viewed over 50k times, read: “The Laundrie family attorney says Brian did not have a cell phone or wallet when he left the house Tuesday. When we asked him if Brian had a weapon -- he said ‘unknown.’ And he didn't respond when asked where the cell phone is now.”

Another tweet from the NewsNation’s Miami Bureau correspondent quoted a Petito family friend. It read: “Here is our latest. Noreen Gibbons –a close family friend of the Petito’s– says Gabby and Brian were planning to end their trip with her in Portland. She was like a grandma to Gabby. ‘I don’t know if I want him dead or if I want him alive to face the consequences,’ she says now.”


Gabby was on a cross-country trip with Brian before she disappeared. She was reported missing by her family on September 11 and the search operations were launched, but the efforts ended tragically on September 19 after her remains were discovered inside a national park in Wyoming. The official identification was done on September 21 as the Denver office of the FBI said in a statement, “Teton County Coroner Dr Brent Blue confirmed the remains are those of Gabrielle Venora Petito, date of birth March 19, 1999. Coroner Blue’s initial determination for the manner of death is homicide. The cause of death remains pending final autopsy results.”

Besides, the 22-year-old woman’s boyfriend Brian has also been missing since September 14, a day before he was named a person of interest in the case. A wide search operation has been launched for him at Carlton Reserve, Florida after his parents claimed he went for a hike and never returned. 

However, the search effort to find the 23-year-old man official became a manhunt Thursday evening, September 23, after the FBI obtained a search warrant for him in connection to Gabby’s death. Brian has allegedly used unauthorized access devices — namely a Capital One debit card — “on or about August 30, 2021, through and including on or about September 1, 2021” in Wyoming and some other place and “obtained things of value aggregating to $1,000 or more.”

Who is Brian Entin?

According to the NewsNation website, Entin is an Emmy award-winning journalist, who most recently served WSVN as a reporter in Miami. The site states, “While at WSVN, Brian covered several major hurricanes, including Dorian from The Bahamas, Irma in the Florida Keys, and the rebuilding efforts after Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.”

It added that Entin stayed in Washington, DC, for much of the first 100 days of former President Donald Trump’s reign. The University of Missouri graduate was honored with “Emmy Awards for his coverage of the aftermath of the Fuego Volcano eruption in Guatemala and his coverage of the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.” The NewsNation website added: “In 2018, Brian extensively covered the Parkland school shooting and was the first reporter to obtain video of the shooter attacking deputies in jail. He also was the first reporter with video of Charles Kinsey — an unarmed man with his hands in the air — shot by police in North Miami.”

Entin’s coverage of Gabby’s case has also brought him a lot of praise online. A fan of him tweeted, “Brian entin and his cameraman Luis have to be exhausted I swear. They have been standing next to the laundrie house or at the reserve non stop for the past week and a half. This man really doing the most.” Another one said, “Thank you for all your coverage Brian I’m wondering if you could interview the neighbors that seen Brian and his parents leave for that few days camp trip. The reporter didn’t ask them if they seen them when they returned. Maybe someone saw them return, was Brian with them ?”




A tweet appreciating him read, “Never have I seen a better reporter than @BrianEntin. I will continue to follow him long after this case is complete. He is dedicated, truthful, respectful, and damn good at what he does. Of all the ‘bad’ that this particular case has been, the only good thing is finding BE!!” A user even suggested, “Can we start a petition for @BrianEntin to work for a better network? I feel like his journalism skills aren’t appreciated enough at this one. That lady came off really condescending #BrianLaundrie.” “@NewsNationPR @NewsNationNow  I would like to acknowledge the outstanding work @BrianEntin &his crew have accomplished in Gabby’s case. If he wasn’t covering the story we,the public,wouldn’t have info/updates &the progress wouldn’t have come so far so fast,” a tweet added.
