Connect With Anthony Pittman

After more than 20 years in television news, Anthony Pittman is proud to continue his career and life journey in the Texas Panhandle.

As the son of an Air Force veteran, Anthony spent time in England and Alaska before settling in San Antonio.

That's where he says he began to see the "world around him" and fell in love with the possibility of one day becoming a television personality, like his boyhood journalistic idol Howard Cossell.

By the time Anthony graduated from John Jay High School in San Antonio, his eyes were focused on a career in television sports.

He attended Southwest Texas State University, now Texas State University, before landing his first television job in Greenville, Mississippi.

After stops in cities like West Palm Beach, Florida and San Antonio as sports anchor and reporter, Anthony left the television business for three years before realizing he missed the job that always put a smile on his face. When ABC 7 offered him the opportunity to return to broadcast news, he said yes without question.

Anthony never hesitates to tell you his career passion is broadcast journalism.

As a co-anchor on ABC 7's morning show Daybreak, Anthony focuses primarily on local, national, and international news, but still welcomes every opportunity to talk sports.

Anthony enjoys spending his free time volunteering for faith-based organizations, watching television, following his beloved Miami Dolphins or Boston Red Sox, or just being lazy on the couch.

Anthony believes faith and family are most important in his life.

If you see Anthony out and about, don't hesitate to say hello. He loves a good conversation and meeting a new friend.
