Anna began her on-screen career presenting live and pre recorded reports for the weekday breakfast TV show, Ireland
AM. After landing a series of exclusives for the show, interviewing the world’s biggest stars and reporting from locations
around the globe, Anna was keen to become anchor and pitched for a weekend version of the hugely popular weekday
In 2015, Anna was launched as the anchor of the brand new ‘Weekend AM’, a new lifestyle magazine show that
aired for six live hours across Saturday and Sunday mornings on Virgin Media One.
Both shows exceeded all ratings
targets and as co-anchor of both, it’s something Anna is hugely proud of. These days Anna continues to anchor the
weekend shows (now rebranded Ireland AM) and also anchors the four-hour live broadcast each Friday morning from
7am to 11am on Ireland AM.

presenting skills in an environment where there’s little room for error or nerves; live TV three hours daily. Anna sites
astronaut Chris Hadfield, Dame Helen Mirren and Khloe Kardashian as her favourite guests to interview but is also quick
to recognise that quite often it’s the ‘ordinary people’ who provide the most extraordinary TV moments.
