ANIETRA HAMPER

Seasoned Television Journalist

anietra-portrait1

The world is a sandbox of new discoveries, if we only take a moment to uncover them.

It is this curiosity that led Anietra Hamper to a successful career in television news as a top-rated Anchor and Emmy nominated journalist for nearly 20 years. It is the same curiosity that now drives her as an award-winning published travel writer and photographer.

Anietra’s passion for fishing and outdoor adventure around the world is the reason a growing allegiance of fans are inspired by her stories in Game & Fish, AAA Home & Away Magazine, PlanetWare.com, USAToday, Ohio Outdoor News, OhioTourism blogs, FIDO Friendly magazine, Columbus Parent magazine, outdoor articles in Ohio visitor’s guides and as a guest on numerous podcasts and broadcasts.

Anietra’s constant pursuit of new experiences inspires others to let their true passions and dreams become the road map for their lives, and not just something they hope to do “someday.”

Dubbed “the city of makers,” Portland supports the creative talents of self-made artists who upcycle and recycle the most unusual items into innovative, stylish and luxury products. When I first perused the dozens of independent shops in downtown Portland between…

7 Questions to Ask Before Your First Cruise

Cruises are basically baptism by fire. You figure things out as you go, except your cabin hallway – that is something that you pretty much never figure out until the last day on the ship. It is best to get as many questions answered ahead of time as possible to make most of your trip. Just think, next time you will know the ropes!

COSTA SUNGLASSES

Costa Sunglasses offer the best of style, polarization and protection. When it came to sunglasses, I always had to choose: stick with cool aviators that I love, but that do not offer polarization needed for fishing and water activities, or, go for the polarized glasses that are mostly styled for men….
