WSAV News 3 Anchor
Edward Moody anchors WSAV’s new weekday newscast, First News at 4. He landed his first TV news job at the age of 10 when he worked as an anchor/reporter for a nationally syndicated children’s news show called “The What’s Up Network.” That was his first taste at handling high-profile interviews with newsmakers like Caroline Kennedy, Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf and Martin Luther King III. It was the beginning of an ever-growing curiosity about what’s happening in the world around us.
His “adult” career is grounded in nearly 20 years of anchoring and reporting in places like Rochester, Indianapolis and Minneapolis. In a career that has garnered him two Emmy Awards and a Wisconsin Broadcasters Association award.
Edward has done everything from waterskiing atop a human pyramid on the Mississippi River to moderating a congressional debate. He’s anchored live shows from two Super Bowls (one of which earned him his second Emmy Award) and was the first anchor on the air, and the last one off, during the immediate aftermath of the main stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair in 2011.
Edward is thrilled to bring his years of experience to the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry, especially because his family lives here.
