Anne Cutler here… morning anchor extraordinaire! If you watch our newscasts, you may have seen me zooming by at 175 mph on a motorcycle, trudging through knee deep waters in flooded homes or interviewing celebrities on the red carpet.

I’m a Californian by birth, but New Orleans is home. Before moving to the Crescent City, I worked in California, Wyoming and Nevada. My husband Joe is a proud U.S. Marine, we have a little munchkin named Beauregard, along with two furry beagle-children, Bruin and Royce. We keep busy on the weekends renovating our 130-year-old Uptown home. If you’d like to follow the progress, you can check out my blog,

It’s tough to decide my most memorable TV experience. I recall reporting from the fire-lines in Reno while an entire neighborhood burned behind me, covering the sudden death of a beloved U.S. Senator in Wyoming while fighting back tears and fulfilling a childhood dream of meeting a sloth at the Audubon Zoo. That’s the best part about my job. Every day is a new adventure!

If you ever have a story idea, comment or suggestion, I’d love to hear from you. You can find me on Facebook at, on Twitter @AnneCutler, on Instagram @AnneCutler and on Pinterest as HammerandHeels.

Oreo is responsive, comes right away and knows “sit.” He is still very much a puppy, so crate training is recommended when he can’t be supervised. The Jefferson Parish Animal […]
