Gianna Toboni is a producer and is a correspondent working across VICE News Tonight, the Emmy award-winning half-hour nightly newscast and the multi-award-winning VICE on HBO series. Over the last year, Toboni has covered escalating cartel violence and political corruption in Mexico, tracked down Nigerian pirates on their illegal oil refineries and landed an exclusive interview with death row inmate, Scott Dozier. She’s been on the forefront of the most important domestic debates in the United States, interviewing charter school magnate Dick DeVos about school choice and sitting down with NRATV's Grant Stinchfield for a contentious interview about mass shootings.

Before joining VICE in 2013, she worked as a correspondent at Al Jazeera and as a producer for ABC News. In 2015, Toboni was named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for media jobs and spoke at TEDx in 2014. She won a Webby Award in 2014 for Best Documentary Series for The Real, as well as a GLAAD Media Award for Church and States in 2017.

Recently, Toboni was recognized by the Newswomen’s Club of New York at the Front Page Awards for her reporting on transgender youth. In one of today’s most polarizing debates, she brought awareness to an unseen struggle as families made critical and life-altering decisions, stirring the national conversation about youth and gender at a pivotal time.
