This just in: Bears anchor local and national news across the country
The music swells, the graphics give way, and the camera zooms in to the anchor desk; the nightly news is on the air once again. And all across the country, there’s a decent chance it’s a Baylor alum reading you the news.
On local newscasts from the Gulf Coast to the Great Plains, you’ll find alums flinging their green and gold. Scanning anchor biographies, it’s pretty common to read that an anchor “is a proud Baylor alum” or “cheers on her Baylor Bears.” These alumni have become trusted voices in their communities on newscasts from morning to night.

Baylor also boasts graduates in weather, sports and behind the scenes, telling the stories that impact viewers, providing contacts for future Baylor newscasters, and even taking advantage of the banter between stories to slip in the occasional “Sic ’em, Bears!”
Sic ’em, Baylor news anchors!
