TWG Client Brandi Cummings receives South Carolina Legislative Honor

Brandi Cummings receives
resolution from SC Sen. John
COLUMBIA— State lawmakers welcomed former WIS-TV news anchor and reporter Brandi Cummings back to South Carolina on Tuesday, May 8 presenting her with joint resolution recognizing her work to keep Columbia area viewers well informed and her service to the local community.  Cummings—now at WTOC-TV in Savannah, Georgia—worked at WIS from 2007 until her departure in September 2011.

During her time in Columbia, Cummings served as anchor of WIS News 10 Saturday Morning and host of the community and public affairs program Awareness.  She also filed reports for WIS News 10 Sunrise and the station’s various evening newscasts.

In addition to her work as a broadcast journalist, Cummings fulfilled a lifelong dream to help young girls build strong self-esteem.  In 2010, she published her first book of poetry, Straight to the Heart: Life & Love and created the Loving Me series of seminars.

“My goal has always been to help girls discover the developing young woman in each of them and the immense potential they have,” said Cummings.  “I was blessed to see this dream come true while here in South Carolina and I continue to carry it forward now that I’m in Savannah.”

State Senator John Scott, D-Richland County, introduced S-1219 in February.  “I felt that we should formally thank Brandi for her years of fine service to the people of South Carolina,” said Scott.  “She reached out to young girls in our state and made a real difference in their lives. We greatly appreciate that,” Scott continued.

“I am humbled and honored to receive this recognition from the State of South Carolina,” said Cummings.

Cummings, a native of Augusta, Georgia, is a graduate of Clark Atlanta University.  She is co-anchor of THE News at Daybreak, Monday through Friday on WTOC-TV.
