Anna Coren, do you feel familiar with that name? Switch your TV to CNN (if you are subscribing to cable TV). If you’re lucky, you’ll get Anna Coren as the newsreader.
Anna Coren began her journalism career at Nine Network Australia.
Then, she moved to Seven Network Australia to host public affairs show, Today Tonight. There are three Today Tonights in Australia; East Coast edition (Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney), Adelaide and Perth. Anna co-hosted the East Coast edition of the show.
The East Coast edition of Today Tonight was broadcasted from Channel 7 studio in Melbourne during Naomi’s era and moved to Sydney when Anna took over. Not all the time, though, she presented the show from Martins Place.

Anna didn’t last long. She only stayed at Today Tonight for only one year, compared to Naomi’s ten years in the show.
And now, she is in Hong Kong working for Cable News Network (CNN). Here are some pictures I took only this morning when I saw Anna accidentally on CNN.
There was one occasion though when she came back to Australian screen, it was during a breaking news of Sri Lanka cricket team attack.

And of course, the most important part, the attacks on Anna Coren by the Chasers.
