Anne McCloy anchors the 5pm, 5:30pm and 6pm newscasts for CBS 6 Albany. She joined the team in April 2015.
Anne came to the Capital Region from Nashville, TN where she reported and anchored breaking news during the morning newscast and filed reports for the evening broadcasts. She was also a fill-in news anchor and fill-in traffic anchor. Anne won two regional Emmy Awards in 2015 for coverage of a deadly tornado that destroyed homes in Alabama and for her reports on flash flooding that devastated businesses and interstates in Nashville.
Anne started her career in Oregon as a weekend news reporter and was eventually moved into the weekday morning anchor chair. During her run as morning anchor Anne filed investigative reports for the evening news. She was best known in Oregon for a series of stories on alleged abuses inside the Jackson County Jail.
Anne's 8th grade technology teacher, Mr. Garland Green, encouraged Anne to pursue broadcasting after Anne was chosen to read the morning announcements for Kyrene Middle School Television in Tempe, Arizona. Anne eventually attended the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University because of the push from her teacher and her Mom. Anne is an avid runner and a believer in healthy eating. She tries to run 5-6 miles/ 5-6 days a week and her goal is to someday qualify for the New York Marathon. Anne's parents are ballroom dancers, so you may catch her dancing around the Capital Region from time-to-time with the family! Feel free to let her know your favorite places to dance.
