PINE BELT, Miss. (WDAM) - This week, we introduced you to Brandy McGill, who will be co-anchoring with me, Vanessa, on Sunrise.

If you missed her introduction, here’s a little bit more about her.

“I’m super excited to be joining the sunrise team,” Brandy said. “This is a major move for me.”

“I started my career down on the Coast as a reporter and then moved on to become a morning/weekend anchor. Moving back home and being able to grow in my career here, It feels really great,” Brandy added.

Brandy is a hard worker with a passion for breaking news. She is also a loving mother who wants to report on issues that affect households.

“The shifts are very early,” Brandy said. “I’m still getting accustomed to that, but I mean, I am a mom, so I’m used to starting my morning off early. Ultimately, what I really like about this shift is that I’m going to be able to spend more time, you know, doing things with my son and my family, so that means a lot.

“I’m happy to be joining you all every single morning in your homes, but I’m always a reporter first, telling those impactful stories. I enjoy telling stories that impact households. Anything that the family is impacted by, I like to tell those stories and be their voice,” Brandy added.

Brandy is a Hattiesburg native who has deep connections to the Pine Belt. She hopes to show that with her reporting and anchoring.

“I grew up here in Hattiesburg,” Brandy said. “I went to school here. I went to North Forrest High School, then went on to Jones County Junior College, now Jones College, and then I finished up at the University of Southern Mississippi. I did my internship right here at WDAM, so it’s kind of like a full circle. I mean, everything has happened at home, and I’m just happy to be here.”
