Marcos Ortiz

Emmy award winning journalist and producer, reporter of the Justice Files seen nightly on ABC4.

Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to work as a journalist in radio, newspaper and television.

My career began in Blythe California with stops in Green River and Cheyenne Wyoming.  I was hired to be KGGM’S political reporter in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  I arrived in Salt Lake City in 1992 as a general assignments reporter before moving into the crime beat.

I’ve been married to my wife Sandy Olney for 30-years.  We have a daughter, Olivia who is a law student at the University of Utah.  For the past 16-years, our family has been blessed to travel, hike, walk with Sir Charles, our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

Feel free to get a hold of me by email at or Twitter.
