Friday Edition of #MediaMonday – What’s New With Catherine Anaya

Friday Edition of #MediaMonday – What’s New With Catherine Anaya

 |  Aug 26, 2016

We featured Catherine Anaya back in April 2010 when she was full time into her anchoring career at CBS 5 News and very active in the local community. And then life happened. And Catherine made the decision to step down from the anchor desk and focus on her family. But that didn’t mean she gave up on her career, it simply meant that she re-prioritized things. And lucky for us, that means that we’re going to see her on the air again, as host of a new program on AZTV. in honor of her new gig, we update our initial profile on Catherine, available in the link. Enjoy!

Media Training Outliers

 |  Jan 10, 2013

As most of you know, Abbie was recently featured on ESPN! Her insight was brilliant – focused on how those “boring” sound bites from athletes are really just them hitting their message points in sometimes-emotional moments. If you missed it, click here. Anyhow, I agree with her concepts wholeheartedly, especially today with morality and social […]
