Anna Phillips joined the WECT news team in July 2019.
Anna grew up in Morganton, North Carolina and graduated with her Bachelor of Arts from The University of North Carolina Wilmington where she double majored in English and Communication Studies. Go Seahawks!
Anna began her career as a general assignment reporter for WVIR in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2014. She then moved to Greenville, NC to report for WITN-TV. While at WITN, Anna received her first RTDNAC award for a feature story about the summertime "modern day lighthouse keepers" of the Cape Lookout Lighthouse.
Anna loves highlighting unique people and places in our communities. She's interviewed clowns in a cemetery (they were honoring an aerialist who died in a love triangle shootout in 1906), covered presidential campaign events and delved into the ongoing recovery and future flood planning efforts following Hurricanes Matthew and Florence.
Anna's favorite stories are about ordinary people doing extraordinary things. She'd love to hear yours. You can reach her via email at email@example.com and you can find her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram under @annaphillipstv.
Anna lives in Wilmington with her fiance, Christian, and their two rescue dogs Toby and Maya.
