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.
Anne lives in downtown San Francisco with two former shelter cats, Toby and Rusty.
