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 from California by birth, but New Orleans is home! Before moving to the Crescent City, I worked in Wyoming and Nevada. New Orleans is a big change from the Old West! My husband Joe is a proud member of the U.S. Marine Corps, we have a little munchkin named Beauregard, along with two furry beagle-children, Bruin and Royce. We all 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, www.hammer-and-heels.com.

It’s tough to decide my favorite TV moment. I recall reporting from the fire-lines in Reno with entire neighborhoods burning behind me, covering the sudden death of a U.S. Senator in Wyoming while fighting back tears on air and fulfilling a childhood dream of meeting a sloth at the Audubon Zoo. That’s what I love 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.

    Republicans move to separate immigration issue from DHS funding bill

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — Congress has just three days until Department of Homeland Security funding runs out, and it’s anyone’s guess whether they’ll take the department off the cliff. On Monday night, the Senate again voted down a DHS funding bill that included a measure rolling back President Barack Obama’s executive action delaying deportations for immigrants. But that night, a potential solution emerged as well, with Sen. Mitch McConnell announcing he’ll bring a separate bill to the floor tackling Obama’s immigration […]

Kai was visiting his grandfather in Hawaii when he hauled in the half-ton fish. The 14-foot long behemoth is just 300 pounds short of the world record. Kai says the experience has invigorated his interest in a career in marine biology.
