Anne State is a three-time Emmy award winner who anchors the 6 & 9 p.m. newscasts on FOX6. OnMilwaukee.com writer Dave Begel writes, "She is as straightforward an anchor as we’ve seen here in a long time…She has a sense of humor but avoids the normal anchor trap of being silly. Anyone who wants to be a TV anchor should watch her on air."
Behind the scenes, Anne is a mean tease writer who's constantly working on promo's for the shows and for social media. Follow her on Twitter and Facebook and you'll see what we mean.
Before coming to Milwaukee, Anne was an evening anchor/reporter at WBBM-TV in Chicago. She was on the anchor desk the night President Barack Obama was elected. Shortly after arriving in town, Michigan Avenue Magazine wrote, "She's only been in Chicago since April, but we must admit, she fascinates us... she has energy that leaps off the screen." Anne was nominated for an Emmy for her anchoring at WBBM.
Originally from California, Anne spent several years as an anchor/reporter at NBC San Diego. She was on the front lines of the San Diego Wildfires of 2003 and 2007 and was named "One of the 50 People to Watch" by San Diego Magazine.
Anne is proud to have dual Irish and American citizenship. She holds degrees from UCSD and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. In between those degrees, she backpacked around the world -- solo. She saw the Taj Mahal, swam in the Great Barrier Reef and hiked the Himalaya. She also worked as a secretary for several months in Sydney and London to help pay for the trip.
