Anthony Pura anchors WEAR's 3 In the Morning on the Weekends. During the week, he is out in the Northwest Florida communities covering news as it breaks and reporting on stories that matter to you.

Anthony may be a familiar face to Channel 3 viewers. He first joined the news team in June of 2011 as a General Assignment Reporter, after spending two years reporting in the Lincoln, Nebraska market. Anthony grew up in Kerman, a small town in California's Central Valley. He headed back West in 2013, and spent nearly a year as a reporter at the ABC station in Fresno. But he rejoined the WEAR team in April 2014 and is thrilled to be back in the Gulf Coast.

"Pensacola is like a second home to me," Anthony said. " I truly missed the beach and the people while I was gone."

Anthony went to UCLA and graduated with a bachelor's degree in mass communications and political science. He also has a masters degree in broadcast journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.

In his free time, Anthony enjoys running, reading and watching sports. Even though he is on the other side of the country, he is still a loyal San Francisco 49ers fan. Anthony also tries to experience everything the community has to offer, including all the annual events and festivals held at the beach and downtown.

Anthony would love to hear from you. Feel free to shoot him an email about any comments or issues that concern you. And make sure to send him a message on facebook and a tweet on twitter!" /> Anthony Pura anchors WEAR's 3 In the Morning on the Weekends.
