A Spectrum News 1 anchor since 2017, Ana Bottary is passionate about delivering the stories that matter most to communities across Massachusetts.

Ana's journalism career took her to various states across the East Coast, including Maine and Rhode Island. Today, Ana is proud to report for the state she is a native of. 

Throughout the countless stories Ana has covered, the few that stick out as her most memorable are the various stories that illustrate Worcester's efforts to combat the opioid crisis. In particular, Ana recalls her coverage that followed Worcester's Quality of Life Task Force, which shed light on the people who work tirelessly to help connect homeless individuals with resources that they may not have known were available to them. 

When Ana isn’t working on her next story, she’s usually traveling, planning her next beach trip or fitting a workout into her busy schedule. When it comes to Worcester's hidden gem, she calls out Shrewsbury Street as an amazing place to spend your time, with dozens of restaurants to choose from.
