Anthony Pura anchors WEAR's Three In the Morning on the Weekends. During the week, he is out in the Northwest Florida communities covering news as it breaks and reporting on stories that matter to you.
He joined the news team in June of 2011 as a General Assignment Reporter.
Anthony grew up in Kerman, a small town in California's Central Valley. He went to UCLA and graduated with a bachelor's degree in Mass Communication and Political Science. Anthony also has a master's degree in broadcast journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
Anthony began his journalism career in Central Nebraska, where he spent two years as a general assignment reporter. He also spent nearly a year reporting for the ABC station in Fresno, California. Though he's lived in many cities, Anthony says Northwest Florida is one place that stands out.
"I love how friendly the people are," he said. "I have met some of the best people ever working and living in this community."
In his free time, Anthony enjoys running, reading and watching sports. Even though he is now on this side of the country, he is still a loyal San Francisco 49ers fan. Anthony also tries to experience everything the community has to offer, including all the annual events and festivals held at the beach and downtown.
Anthony would love to hear from you. Feel free to shoot him an email about any comments or issues that concern you.
