Best Local TV Anchor

Co-anchor and fellow WSB longtimer Monica Kaufman gets high approval ratings from viewers for her cheery warmth. But we think JOHN PRUITT's cool professionalism was the godsend in a year that required steady reassurance and straightforward professionalism. Two other authoritative anchors -- WAGA's Russ Spencer and WXIA's Brenda Wood -- excelled, while some other supposedly professional journalists leaned on sappy patriotism for ratings. We give Pruitt the edge for his deep knowledge of the community and its issues, which shows.
