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 WORKIN’ WEEKENDS: My Memorial Day Meaning

    It’s Memorial Day Weekend! It’s Memorial Day Weekend…  It’s Memorial Day Weekend. This weekend has a lot of different meanings for a lot of different people. For some, it’s heart-breaking as they remember someone they love who has passed. For others, it’s heart-fulfilling as they use the extra weekend day for an opportunity to reunite with friends or family. For me, it’s a very heart-provoking time of year as I reflect on the last two years… and the last seven […]

    The Sharp Side on Mmm! MONDAY: Simply Complicated

    It’s a Sunday (not yesterday… although that was a crazy day, too!) and – #SHOCKER – it’s a pretty crazy day at WQAD. Normally, I don’t take a dinner break and just eat some leftovers at my desk. However, Zach was out of town in Des Moines for work so I needed to run home and let Zuno out right after News 8 at 5pm. Since it’s a Sunday and I always get groceries on Mondays, the food in the house […]

    The Sharp Side on THANKFUL THURSDAY: Thank You, Jason

    To the guy who was my first friend in TV. To the guy who gave me the nickname “Intern Extraordinaire” waaaaaaay back when (Summer 2007). To the guy who pushed me – without even knowing it – to do better and be better as a Producer, a Reporter, an Anchor, and most importantly… as a Friend. I would not be where I am or who I am if it weren’t for you. You have made a huge impact on me, […]

    QC Butcher Says Chicken & Eggs “Safe To Eat” In Light of Bird Flu

On Friday, April 24th, 2015, WQAD asked Tony Ceurvorst of Jerry’s Meat Market those questions regarding chicken and eggs. His family-owned business (since 1950) sells both and he says both are safe to eat. Ceurvorst says his chicken comes from the south, where the main producers are.

    The Sharp Side on WORK IT WEDNESDAY: Running for a Reason

    It was 1999. I was in 7th Grade. It was actually probably around this time of year. I remember thinking – Whoa. My feet feel different. Then – You want me to jump OVER that thing? No way. I had joined the O’Neill Junior High Track Team because… well, probably because “everyone was doing it” or I needed “something to do.” I thought hurdles would be fun… until I started running towards one and realized that this thick, hard bar was […]
