WGNO, the ABC Television Network affiliate for the greater New Orleans area, has named Anne Cutler anchor of “Good Morning New Orleans,” which she will co-anchor with Jon Huffman and Chief Meteorologist Hank Allen. Cutler will also become the solo anchor of “WGNO News at 11am.” Her new position will be effective February 1.
Cutler, who joined WGNO in 2010, joined the morning team as a news reporter on “Good Morning New Orleans” and reporter and fill-in anchor of WGNO’s popular and eccentric “News with a Twist” at 5 and 6 PM.
Prior to calling New Orleans home, Cutler anchored the morning show at KOLO 8 in Reno, Nevada.
“Anne has immersed herself in the culture, history, traditions, and vibe of New Orleans. She’s a great addition to Good Morning New Orleans and WGNO News at 11a. She’ll bring her new love of the city and journalistic flair to morning viewers.” said Rick Erbach, News Director, WGNO.
“After years of reporting for WGNO News and “News with a Twist,” I’m thrilled to take the next step in my career and bring my experience to the anchor desk as the new face of “Good Morning New Orleans” and “WGNO News at 11:00.” Viewers can look forward to a refreshing change of pace as they sip their morning coffee and find out the news of the day, what’s happening in our community and what people will be talking about,” said Cutler.
