Best Local TV Anchor (substance) 

Brenda Wood

Channel 11 WXIA-TV
Brenda Wood's long tenure in Atlanta and the dispassionate intelligence she conveys from the anchor's desk separate her from colleagues at other stations. The city's airwaves actually are blessed with several good anchors: veteran John Pruitt at WSB-TV 2, the highly professional Russ Spencer (our prod at his made-for-TV looks, notwithstanding) at WAGA and WAGA's effervescent Amanda Davis come to mind. But Wood's consistently professional demeanor and, especially, the easy manner with which she occasionally ad libs smart questions and comments, conspire to give her an unmatched gravitas. She's certainly not just another pretty face; she's an authoritative anchorwoman who lets the viewer relax, knowing that a pro is firmly in control of the broadcast.
