"Just do the best you can everyday. The rest will take care of itself."

A passion for learning new things and telling good stories is why CBS News 8 Anchor Carlo Cecchetto loves being in television news.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Carlo grew up on the sunny, sandy beaches of Oahu. Making the move to the mainland at the age of 12, his family landed in Southern California. He attended college here as well, graduating from the University of Southern California with a degree in Political Science.

Carlo's love of news has only grown since he got his first on-air job, as a weekday reporter and weekend anchor at KOBI, the NBC affiliate in Medford. He shot, wrote, and edited his own pieces.

That job led to an evening anchor position at KXXV, the ABC affiliate in Waco, Texas.

Carlo arrived at KFMB in the fall of 2003 working as a reporter and fill-in anchor until leaving at the end of 2006.

He spent his time away from San Diego as an evening anchor at KMTV in Omaha, Nebraska and learned that the Midwest is much more than "flyover country".

That being said, Carlo's more than excited to be back in the city and at the station that he considers home.

It's at CBS News 8 where Carlo says he "grew up" as a reporter. From the Wildfires of 2003 to the Duke Cunningham scandal, he's covered it all. He says he's learned from working alongside the best reporters in town and forged a commitment to accurate,balanced, and engaging reporting.

Carlo has two lovely daughters who are his first and foremost priority in life.

He's active in his community, volunteering in classrooms and at numerous events.

Carlo is also a sports addict, and especially enjoys following his beloved USC Trojans football team.
