Tammie Fields - Evening Anchor with Spectrum News 13
Tammie Fields has been an evening anchor with Spectrum News 13 since 2017. She’s constantly inspired by viewers, who remain her No. 1 priority.
Tammie has been honored by the Associated Press with an individual achievement award for coverage of the hurricanes in 2004. In 2005, she earned an award from the American Heart Association for Excellence in Cardiovascular Communications for her “Take It to Heart” segments. Two years later, Tammie earned a media ambassador award for her work as a Power to End Stroke Ambassador. In 2009, she was recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists for investigative reporting.
It is Tammie’s love of history that shaped her future, leading her to become a journalist — or as she puts it, a recorder of history. Tammie has covered several historical events in the Orlando area, including the Groveland Four, the Ocoee Election Day Race Massacre, and “Integration in The City Beautiful.” She has interviewed white supremacist David Duke and John Paul Rogers, a Central Florida former Grand Dragon of the United Klans of America who ran for mayor in Lake Wales.
Tammie has flown with the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels and interviewed famous people such as former first lady Laura Bush and R&B singer Brian McKnight. She has also had the privilege to meet the late civil rights leader Coretta Scott King and her daughter, the late Yolanda King, at an annual breakfast honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Tammie is a proud member of the Central Florida Association of Black Journalists, National Association of Black Journalists and National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications.
