Whereas, originally from a small community in Williamsburg County, this native daughter of the Palmetto State grew up on a tobacco farm in Nesmith. With humble beginnings, Ann developed deep roots emphasizing the importance of community as she continued on to become an award-winning journalist with over thirty-five years of news experience in both television and radio; and
Whereas, well-known for her work in Columbia, as well as the Greensboro and Winston-Salem markets, Ann refined her journalistic skills in service to the people of those communities. She uses her natural gifts and many connections to make a difference in the lives of individual citizens by connecting people with job openings through her Live 5 "Now Hiring" and "Working Wednesdays" television segments. She works diligently to use her social media platforms to connect people with businesses, which was especially critical during the COVID-19 pandemic, when individuals struggled to locate employment opportunities without in-person events; and
Whereas, throughout her career, Ann has received numerous accolades from her peers. As early as 2002, she was awarded Second Place for Best Newscast from the South Carolina Associated Press Broadcasters; in 2005, the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs honored her with their Consumer Spirit Award; in 2016, she was awarded Second Place for the Medical/Health Report from Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas; in 2017, she was nominated for Best Morning Newscast in the Southeast by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences; and in 2021, the South Carolina Broadcasters Association bestowed upon her the Award of Merit as well as being named Anchor of the Year; and
Whereas, Ann has received much recognition and numerous awards for her extensive work in the Charleston community. Among those awards are Outstanding Community Service awards, Best News Anchor, Excellence in Broadcasting, and most recently in 2022, she was named the Women's History Month Honoree by the University of South Carolina Alumni Association. Among her greatest honors, she was named to the Williamsburg County School District Hall of Fame in 2013 for being an outstanding and inspirational leader; and
Whereas, Ann has cultivated and developed a career that allows her to successfully utilize her own natural journalistic talents while also serving the communities which have allowed her to prosper; and
Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives, is grateful for the dedication that Andrewnetta "Ann" McGill has given to reporting in this great State and the members wish her many years of fulfillment as she continues her career in journalism. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and honor Andrewnetta "Ann" McGill, an award-winning journalist and evening news anchor with Live 5 News-WCSC TV, and express profound appreciation for the service she has provided to the citizens of this great State and nation.
