Harry Samler is a general assignment reporter who joined CBS Atlanta News in 2005.
For more than 10 years, Harry was one of Atlanta's only "one-man bands," shooting, writing, editing and reporting all of his own stories.
He put down the camera in 2005 to focus on reporting and can be seen daily on CBS Atlanta's Pothole Patrol segment.
In 2004, The National Association of Television Arts and Sciences awarded him his 5th Emmy, this time for best reporter in the Southeast Region. In the 90's the National Press Photographers Association named him "Regional Photographer of the Year" for the Midwest. He's also earned national honors and numerous awards from the Associated Press.
Harry started his TV career in Savannah, Georgia in 1991 as an overnight reporter/photographer. From there he went on to Columbus, GA, and then Louisville, KY. Finally, in 1996, Harry moved to Atlanta two weeks before the start of the Olympics.
Harry is a graduate of Tulane University in New Orleans.
