Anne McCloy joined Channel 4 News in March 2012 as a reporter.
Anne was a morning anchor and multimedia journalist at the KOBI-TV, the NBC affiliate in Medford, OR.
She was most recognized for investigative reporting concerning alleged abuses by sheriff staff in the Jackson County Jail. The series of reports uncovered dozens of cases where inmates received medical neglect, physical abuse or died as a result of being in jail. Many inmates were never found guilty of a crime.
She was the only southern Oregon reporter to be in the Crescent City, CA, harbor in 2011 when the tsunami that struck Japan reached southern Oregon and northern California. The event caused millions of dollars in damages to the coastlines. Anne's reports on the West Coast tsunami aired nationally on CNN and NBC Nightly News.
Anne learned of her love for journalism in middle school when a teacher encouraged her to try out for KMS-TV, a student newscast production in Tempe, AZ. Anne became an "anchor" for the 15-minute newscast which told the schools morning announcements. When she turned 18, Anne received her first TV job at Arizona Public Television. She performed nearly every behind-the-scene job for local programming from technical directing to producing 3-hour live pledge drives.
Anne received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University. As a student, Anne worked for the Cronkite News Service, covering news all over the state, including immigration issues on the Arizona/Mexico border.
Anne was born in Pasadena, CA, and grew up in Tempe. Anne loves meeting new people, seeing new places and telling great news stories! In her free time she likes to shop, run, hike, sing and dance (West Coast Swing and Salsa!).
Anne is finding Nashville to be the perfect place to enjoy all of her hobbies.
