Greg Argos joined CBS 3’s Eyewitness News team as a general assignment reporter in August, 2015.

A New Jersey native who grew up in Dover, Delaware, Argos came to CBS 3 from KPHO-TV in Phoenix where he had been a reporter and back up anchor since 2012. Previously, he was a reporter at WCNC-TV in Charlotte, North Carolina and WMBF-TV in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Argos began his career as a freelance photojournalist and assignment editor at New York 1 cable news in Manhattan in 2007 where his most memorable story was covering the Papal Mass of Pope Benedict XVI at Yankee Stadium in 2008. Argos returned home just in time to cover Pope Francis’ historic visit to Philadelphia in 2015.

Along the way, Argos has earned three regional Emmy Awards and three Associated Press Awards for his reporting. He is a 2008 graduate of New York University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in broadcast journalism and political science. Argos, who is of Greek heritage, minored in Hellenic studies.

Fun Fact: Argos and Anchor Ukee Washington are both alumni of Dover High School. In his spare time, Argos likes to work out, explore Philly’s great restaurant scene (Gyro suggestions welcomed!) and read.
