A talk on Human Trafficking by Anne Kramer

Anne has won several industry awards for her reporting.  Those include a National Edward R. Murrow Award for Investigative Reporting in 2007, a regional Edward R. Murrow award from the Radio and Television News Directors Association, and numerous awards from the Associated Press.

Anne Kramer is an award winning reporter and anchor for WBAL Radio 1090 AM in Baltimore. She has covered all types of stories during the 17 years she has been with WBAL from witnessing an execution to reporting from a political convention. A broadcasting veteran for twenty-two years, Anne is most proud of her work on investigative stories. She reported on the problem of 9-1-1 calls from motorists on a Baltimore interstate being jostled around. Anne’s report led to a new agreement between state and county police outlining who would handle and respond to such calls.  In a five part series in the fall of 2013, Anne reported on sex trafficking in Maryland and how it is a growing problem.  Her reports included stories from victims, going with police when they tried to rescue  prostitutes and how hotels in the Baltimore area were not willing to talk about what if anything they were doing to stop sex trafficking.

Anne worked as news director, anchor and reporter for several stations in Western Maryland before moving to Baltimore in 1994.  After two years at WPOC-FM, Anne moved to her current position at WBAL-AM in 1996.
