Angie Sharp is WQAD's Weekend Anchor. You can watch her, alongside Storm Track 8 Meteorologist Cassie Heiter and News 8 Sports' Kory Kuffler, on Saturday at 6pm & 10pm and Sundays at 5pm & 10pm.

While she wasn't born in the Quad Cities, the Quad Cities have always been very important to Angie.

Before moving to Downers Grove, Illinois, Angie's parents and extended family grew up and went to school in East Moline. Angie can remember visiting her grandparent's house (formerly located behind TPC Deere Run) and watching her cousins compete in Marching Band competitions at United Township High School.

However, Angie's earliest memory of the Quad Cities was riding with her dad in a convertible when he was the Grand Marshal in Augustana College's 1990 Homecoming Parade.

18 years later, Angie graduated from Augustana College with a Bachelor's Degree in Speech Communication and English with an Emphasis in Writing. During her time as a Viking, Angie became an Intern at WQAD. Through shadowing reporters, helping producers, and working with photographers, Angie quickly found a passion for telling the stories of her community.

In August 2008, Angie began her career in journalism as a photojournalist with WHBF in Rock Island. In November 2009, she found her way back to WQAD as a producer and reporter for "Good Morning Quad Cities." In October 2010, Angie was taken off the graveyard shift and began reporting full-time for WQAD. In May 2013, Angie became the Weekend Anchor for WQAD.

Angie loves living in the Quad Cities. Her favorite events include the John Deere Classic, the Quad Cities' Marathon, Festival of Trees, the St. Patrick's Day Parade, Boo at the Zoo, and of course, Red, White, and BOOM! A week would not be complete for Angie without a malt from Whitey's, a meal from Hungry Hobo, and a run along the Mighty Mississippi to work it all off.

Angie went from "Mitchum" to "Sharp" in August 2012, when she was married at Short Hills Country Club in East Moline. She currently lives with her husband, Zach Sharp - an Engineer with John Deere - in Moline.

Angie is proud to be part of an incredible team at WQAD and looks forward to meeting you when she's out covering the stories of the day!

    The Sharp Side on WORK IT WEDNESDAY: A Yo-Yo Yogi

    I really, really believe in a balanced lifestyle. With that said, fitness is just as much mental as it is physical. I need to remember that. I mean, I do. You have to get your head right in order to get the motivation to drive to the gym (or in my case, walk down the basement stairs, ha) and do a workout, but I need to remember how powerful a workout is for my brain, my heart, my soul, my […]

    QC Educators React to President’s State of the Union Claims

    It was a small thing he said, but a pretty big claim.

Partly. “In the Quad Cities, we do have the benefit of excellent public school systems and we have seen a steady rise in numbers in terms of graduation rates,” said Scott Crane, President of United Way in […]

Do not treat coffee and donuts like a wine and food pairing... or should we?
