Anne Makovec helps usher in the morning on KPIX 5 Eyewitness News both weekdays and weekends. During the week, she covers breaking news all over the Bay Area for KPIX 5 Early Edition and the news at noon. On Saturdays and Sundays, she anchors the KPIX 5 Early Edition Weekend and reports for the evening broadcasts.

Anne has been covering Northern California news as a reporter and anchor since 2004 in the Monterey Bay, Sacramento, and San Francisco Bay Area. She started her career at her hometown radio station in Wisconsin before she was even finished with high school and hasn’t stopped chasing news since.

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.
