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 across all of Upstate New York where I've work with a team across the state to bring stories that matter to viewers in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany and the Hudson Valley. 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 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.
