Ann Martin News Anchor
In April of 1976, Ann made the trip to Los Angeles in order to begin working as a reporter for KABC-TV. She started off by serving as a co-anchor for the Eyewitness News broadcasts on Saturdays. In the fall of 1980, KABC began broadcasting its evening news for a total of three hours on weeknights. At that time, Ann began working alongside Paul Moyer as a co-anchor for the 5 p.m. hour. This on-air partnership would continue for almost a decade until Moyer returned to competing station KNBC-TV in 1992.
During her time at KABC, Martin was also a guest host on a number of the station’s local shows, such as 3-3-0 and A.M. Los Angeles, among others. In addition to that, she has filled in as a host for the show “Good Morning America” on ABC.
Ann moved to KCBS-TV in the spring of 1994 initially to co-anchor the 5 and 11 p.m. newscasts. The reported $1.7-million-a-year deal, like her former KABC colleague Moyer’s deal with KNBC two years earlier, was highly publicized by the local press. Ann’s move was similar to Moyer’s move. Moyer moved from KABC to KNBC.
In later years, Martin would be reunited with her other former co-workers, including sports anchor Jim Hill, who was already at KCBS after his five-year stint at KABC; Harold Greene, who would succeed Moyer as Martin’s co-anchor and join in early 2001; Laura Diaz, who would join in 2002; and Johnny Mountain, who would arrive in 2005. During her time at KCBS, Martin was not only the co-host of the CBS network special Beyond Belief – Amazing True Stories! with Pat O’Brien, but she was also the anchor of the female-focused broadcast Women 2 Women for a short period of time.
On April 1, 2008, Ann was informed that her contract would not be renewed for the upcoming year. According to claims in the media, her contract supposedly expired on June 1st, 2008. Both the four o’clock news on KCAL and the six o’clock news on KCBS were being anchored by her and Greene at this point in time. CBS said through a press spokeswoman that both of them had made the decision to retire, but Ann herself did not make any official statement regarding the matter.
Throughout the course of her career, she has been recognized for her reporting with two Golden Mike awards and three local Emmy awards.
