CBS7 honors beloved employee Giovanni Pantoja
The Midland native passed away on Saturday evening.
ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) - Giovanni Pantoja worked for CBS7 for 2 years.
Gio, as he was known to all of us, was the producer for the 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts.
Gio attended schools in Midland and the University of North Texas.
He was a force of Nature.
Gio battled cancer on and off since he was a child and still came back strong.
The tower at the UNT Administration Building was lit up over the weekend in remembrance of Gio and the Talons also let a cheer in his honor.
He was one of the strongest people you could meet and always maintained a positive attitude.
Gio was 25 years of age.
A GoFundMe account has been set up by a dear friend with the permission of his family to help with burial expenses.
