Meet Me: Karen Edwards
January 2023 marks 10 years of my on-air career, which has spanned several anchoring, reporting and producing roles across the country. Currently, I serve as Evening Breaking News Anchor for 13WHAM News in Rochester, New York. I co-anchor the 5, 10 and 11 p.m. shows to provide updates and important context to developing and breaking news stories. With a focus on stories that involve the people who are impacted by our storytelling, I appreciate the chance to connect with so many viewers on a daily basis.
Previously, I served as Evening Anchor for Spectrum News 1, anchoring in five markets across Upstate New York. Before that, 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.
