Anna Bulszewicz

POSTED: 1:38 PM Jun 04 2012   UPDATED: 4:34 PM May 26 2014

You can count on NewsChannel 12's Anna Bulszewicz to jumpstart your weekday mornings from 5 to 7 a.m.

Anna grew up in a suburb of Detroit, Mich., and moved to western New York to earn her bachelor's degree in journalism and mass communication at St. Bonaventure University.

While in school, she earned a prestigious internship at WXYZ-TV in Detroit that introduced Anna to the fast-paced mentality the news industry requires. She received guidance and sculpted her work ethic and journalistic skills while working with top-market news personalities, including now CNN reporter/anchor Reza Sayah and NBC News reporter Marc Santia.

She followed her dream to become a reporter/anchor in the northern Michigan town of Alpena. It was there that she worked for WBKB-TV, quickly sculpting her career as a well-balanced reporter, anchor, show host, producer, photographer and editor.

Her reporting career flourished as she had a chance to make her mark covering local and national elections, interviewing high-profile officials like Michigan Sen. Carl Levin. Anna attended and reported at a national Republican rally with hosts and then presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Sen. John McCain. In Alpena, she also hosted a weekly public affairs talk show, Insights Into Northeast Michigan, displaying local current events and topics of interest. Anna also served as a weather editor and forecasted weather for weekend broadcasts. Endorsed by locals, town officials and even the Michigan State Police Department, Anna used those references to begin her job search around the country.

The search landed Anna in Eastern Carolina. In 2008, she joined the NewsChannel 12 team as the station's Greenville bureau chief. She hit the ground running and became the sole weekday reporter to cover daily news happening in seven counties, including Pitt, Bertie and Martin. Anna's stories earned her a top live spot in most 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts while she covered a wide-variety of enterprise subjects, including weather damage, local politics and crime. In 2010, Anna was offered the morning/noon anchor position and has quickly become an Eastern Carolina favorite. She and StormTrack 12 Meteorologist Les Still have earned consistent top ratings and have dramatically grown the morning show audience within a short span of time. Today, she is part of a news team that has earned several distinguished AP Awards.

Along with the entire NewsChannel 12 team, Anna will never forget Hurricane Irene in 2011. She was live on the air for nearly 30 hours, providing real-time reports and comforting those impacted by the severe weather.

For the last several years, Anna has helped kick off the media portion of the annual celebrity book tour for American novelist, screenwriter and producer Nicholas Sparks. She's had the pleasure of reporting on the set of an episode of ABC's Extreme Home Makeover that featured Martin County.

Anna Bulszewicz is proud of her mid-western roots. She dotes on her family in Michigan: mother Anita, father Joe, siblings Alexandra, Stefan and Salvatore. She loves the nostalgic charm of the South. She has formed a life in the East and has fully embraced the outdoors. She believes the shores of the Crystal Coast are pure magic. Anna loves family and friends, traveling, coffee, laughing, live music, and good food and entertainment. More importantly, she loves the people that wake up with the rise of the sun to watch NewsChannel 12 This Morning and of course, NewsChannel 12 at Noon. She highlights, "I am who I am because of my passion for people and the stories they have to tell."

She invites anyone reading this biography to set the alarm, grab the coffee, and get the weekday morning started the right way with her and StormTrack 12 Meteorologist Les Still.
