Big stories Gerry has covered include the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, the Northridge earthquake in California in 1994, and a military transport plane disaster in 1995, where Gerry's live reporting earned an Idaho Press Club Award. The Oklahoma Associated Press honored Gerry for his report on the farm crisis in 1986. Gerry also enjoyed covering Super Bowl XLIV in south Florida, where the New Orleans Saints won their first NFL championship.

The thrill seeker in Gerry has put him in the cockpits of the Air Force Thunderbirds and the Navy Blue Angels, showing viewers what it's like to soar through daring, high performance aerobatics.
