Peabody and Murrow award-winning journalist, Brandi Hitt, has spent the last 15 years telling the stories that impact our lives.

A national correspondent for ABC Network News, Brandi has traveled overseas to report on the passing of Nelson Mandela, the war in Afghanistan, and Mexican immigration. Closer to home, she's covered California's devastating wildfires, Hurricane Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, and the 2012 and 2016 Presidential elections.

Brandi first knew she wanted to be a journalist as a child in Lodi, California, while watching the show Murphy Brown.

At 19, she got her foot in the door at the Fresno affiliate KMPH as a video editor, where she worked her way up to producing the nightly news. She got her break in front of the camera anchoring Fresno's Great Day morning show.

From there, she moved to KOVR in Sacramento, where she launched and anchored the 4 o'clock newscast, a position which sent her to the war in Afghanistan.

After two years at KTLA as an anchor/reporter in Los Angeles, ABC News hired her as a national correspondent.

Her work has led to 3 Emmys, 2 Murrow awards, and a Peabody.
