Malena Cunningham Anderson

Malena Cunningham Anderson has a track record of success. As a graduate of the University of Georgia, she was positioned to achieve and accomplish, and spent years striving to do great things in spite of, and perhaps because of, the challenging journey.

Cunningham Anderson's resume includes many impressive details, but she takes deep pride in her twenty-three years as an Emmy Award-winning television news anchor. Her path to success was forefront in her mind as she wrote #middleagewisdom. After working on the Little Music Manchild, Cunningham figured she should start her own production company. Called NewsLady Productions, she is continuing coverage of stories of ordinary people who are doing unique and interesting things in their lives.
