Award-winning journalist, Brandi Hitt, has spent the last ten years telling the stories that impact our lives. She is a no-excuses, no-nonsense reporter for ABC Network News, who believes that journalistic integrity is more important than ever.
"You can't get lost in today's fast-paced glitz," says Hitt. "Sure, it's important to be competitive, but you need to make an emotional connection with viewers. People have to be the focus of the stories we tell."
From her Kids Count series on KTLA, which recently earned LA's prestigious Golden Mike Award, to flying into Afghanistan to interview our wounded soldiers, she knows where to find the stories that matter.
"She comes to work early, stays late, and pitches in whenever needed," says former News Director Steve Charlier.
That work ethic led to three Emmy Awards, and she's just getting started, searching the places where those great stories usually begin. Our own backyards.
