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, http://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.

    California’s State Supreme Court has ruled that laws restricting where registered sex offenders can live, once they’re out on parole, are too restrictive and may be unconstitutional. California voters approved “Jessica’s Law” in 2006, which states that registered sex offenders can’t reside within 2,000 feet of a school or park, even if their earlier crimes didn’t involve children. However, the judge’s ruling says those restrictions make it impossible for offenders to find a place to live. It’s not clear if […]
