WASHINGTON — Anna is a Multimedia Producer in Residence at WUSA9. She writes and produces daily content for WUSA9’s TV, digital and social platforms. 

Stepping into this role in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis, Anna covered the pandemic’s escalating impact in D.C., Maryland and Virginia. Anna helped launch WUSA9’s Got My Shot initiative. Through a multi-part series, she told the stories of people in DC, Maryland and Virginia who were at first fearful of the COVID-19 vaccines – and explored why they changed their minds. 

Anna graduated from Scripps College in Claremont, CA with a dual major in politics and French. She saw firsthand the impact that journalism can have on a community as an investigative reporter and co-editor-in-chief of her college newspaper, The Scripps Voice. 

An inveterate traveler, she spent her junior year of college at Sciences Po Paris and in Geneva, while munching her way across Europe. Prior to that, she studied and traveled in Thailand, Cambodia and Myanmar. She’s actively plotting her return. 

Anna loves D.C. but will always call Massachusetts home. Yes, she’s a dutiful Patriots fan, and no, she is not taking follow-up questions about that at this time. 

You can keep up with Anna on Twitter. If you have a story idea or question you want answered, you can email her at alissroy@wusa9.com.
