Ann Sheridan has reported in Charlotte since 1995. In her time at NBC Charlotte, Ann has covered some of the biggest stories our city has seen, including the Susan Smith trial, the Ray Carruth trial, medic Tim Hayes' story and Super Bowl XXXVIII.

Ann has been nominated for more than six Emmy Awards for live reporting and writing. In 2004, she won an Emmy for Non-Hard News. She has also won two Edward R. Murrow awards for writing and reporting and won the Journalism Award of Excellence from the American College of Emergency Physicians.

But perhaps Ann's biggest personal triumph was a series of reports she did in 2009 on her own battle with breast cancer. Ann and NBC Charlotte photographer Dan Robbins chronicled her entire illness, from telling her three children about her cancer to her actual surgery and recovery. Because of the reports, Carolinas Medical Center named a fund in her honor that raises money for mammograms for women who can't afford them. She continues to speak to women and civic groups about her experience and the importance of getting mammograms after the age of 40.

Ann graduated from American University with a degree in Journalism. She works part time so that she can spend more time with her active and always busy children!
