Meet Me: Karen Edwards
January 2021 marks eight years of my on-air career, which has spanned several reporting, anchoring and producing roles across the country. Currently, I serve as Evening Anchor for Spectrum News Rochester where I've worked to break stories the nation and world followed, including the revelation of the Police Department's handling of the Daniel Prude case and the September 2020 mass shooting at a house party.
Previously, I anchored the KTAL and KMSS-TV morning shows in Shreveport, La. while acting as managing editor. Prior to that, I took on the dual role of producing and anchoring three hours of morning news across two networks covering three states for KARD Fox 14 and KTVE NBC 10 in Monroe, La. And my broadcast career started at WRDW-TV in Augusta, Ga. as an Anchor/Reporter.
I have a true passion for every facet of newsgathering and storytelling. I love connecting with viewers from the desk, helping shape the newscast with producers, and hitting the ground to enterprise stories.
