Anderson Burns (Morning/Noon)
I didn't travel far to get here. I just jumped on I-26 in Charleston, where I reported for two years, and moved to Columbia.
Now I am the anchor for Good Morning Columbia and ABC Columbia News at Noon.
I first joined the ABC Columbia News team as weekend anchor.
Originally from Dalton, Ga. (yes, the Carpet Capital. No, I can't get you a good deal.), I graduated from UNC- Chapel Hill, did a brief stint as a stockbroker in Atlanta, then headed to NYC--to do what, I still have no idea. But for 6 years I loved it, working as a 5th grade teacher, a traffic reporter, and getting a Masters in Church History at Union Theological Seminary at Columbia University.
Apparently that wasn't enough schooling, so I moved to Chicago and got another Masters in broadcast journalism from Northwestern. From there, to Charleston, and now, the Capital City. When I'm not anchoring, check out my "Hidden Columbia" reports. They are great fun and help me learn tons about a city that becomes more interesting with every story.
