Brandi Hitt
Peabody and Emmy award-winning journalist Brandi Hitt is a reporter and fill-in anchor for ABC7. A native Californian, she's no stranger to the stories that impact our lives.

As a correspondent for ABC Network News, Brandi regularly appeared on "Good Morning America," "World News Tonight" and "Nightline." Overseas, she traveled to cover Nelson Mandela's death, the war from Afghanistan and Mexican immigration. Closer to home, she reported on California's devastating wildfires, Hurricane Sandy and the Boston Marathon bombing.

Throughout her career, Brandi has strived to fulfill her responsibility as a journalist to shed an impartial light on all angles of every story. That work ethic earned her a Peabody, three Murrow Awards, Emmys and a Golden Mic.

Her unwavering advocacy for children's issues has only grown stronger since the birth of her daughter. It is her belief that every child can make a positive impact on society when given the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
