Andrea Canning A Model Reporter
Remember Andrea Canning, Ch. 9's 5:30 p.m. co-anchor and reporter from 2001 to 2004? You may have seen her doing ABC News reports for Ch. 9 (last week on the State of the Union speech) as an ABC News One correspondent based in Washington D.C.?
Well, you've never seen her like this: She's one of four newswomen modeling for W magazine's "Breaking News" fashion spread in the Febraruy issue. Check it out at
She says she was flattered to be picked for the shoot (an ABC News publicist submitted her photos to the magazine) and to get more attention than the other women (including Laurie Dhue from "Geraldo at Large").
Canning, an Ontario native, says she misses Cincinnati a lot. "I could have stayed in Cincinnati foreever, but I had this dream that I wanted to go to the network." And in a few weeks, she takes another step up the network food chain. She leaves ABC News One and moves to New York, to become a full-time correspondent for the "Good Morning America" weekend shows.
By the way, she says: "I'm not sure these pictures were flattering."
Do you agree? (Gee, knowing how some Anonymous posters have been fixated on local TV women, who knows what kind of response I might get to this one. Just keep it clean and respectful.)
