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.
