Anne has spent much of her journalism career covering politics from the red state of Georgia to wildcard Wisconsin, and most recently, the challenged California Capitol. On Sunday mornings, Anne joins Phil Matier on the anchor desk, getting in-depth interviews with the Bay Area’s state and congressional representatives and other major news makers.
Anne lives in downtown San Francisco with two former shelter cats, Toby and Rusty.
