Prior to joining ABC News, Canning worked for WCPO-TV, the ABC affiliate in Cincinnati, Ohio, as anchor of their evening newscast while also reporting on crime and breaking news. From 1999 to 2001, Canning covered countless stories for WPTV, the NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach, Florida, including the anthrax scare at the National Enquirer buildings, the path of the 9/11 terrorists, the international custody battle of Elian Gonzalez and the 2000 Presidential Election.
