Annie was a reporter with the Ashland Daily Tidings. In 1980, she covered Jefferson Governor Bill Williamson's press conference announcing an annual state grant of $15,000 to the Ashland Shakespeare Festival. She asked Williamson whether the fact that his daughter, Nicole, had been part of the festival had anything to do with this grant. Williamson allowed that Nicole's participation in the festival put Ashland on his radar. When she asked whether Nicole's sudden casting change had any part of his decision, Williamson indicated he had no artistic control over the festival. While that wasn't wholly true, it was a feel-good story, and the press didn't want to push the issue.[1]
