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!

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

    How will the H5N2 Virus – known as “Bird Flu” – impact your health and your wallet? 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. As for his eggs, he says they can come from anywhere – including Iowa. As for […]

    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 […]

    The Sharp Side on TERRIER TUESDAY: The Number 1

    Happy Tuesday Dog Lovers! Happy Tuesday especially to all those Puppy Lovers out there… you know who you are. I say that because… NEWS FLASH: Zuno’s Birthday is next month! I refuse to believe that this sweet, tiny puppy we waited (what seemed like) forever for is going to be one year old at the end of May, but at the same time – he has grown (literally) so much since we got him at two months old at the end of July. Not […]

    Augie Students Create Children’s Book In 3 Days… And That’s Not All

    Kaitlyn Czerwonka and Leesa Potthoff went to Florida for Spring Break. However, their time off from Augustana College was much different from most college students. The Augie Seniors spent a week with high school students who are visually-impaired at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind in St. Augustine, Florida. By the time the two Elementary Education Majors left, they had written and designed a children’s book. “We felt like the students there were teaching us so much more […]

    The Sharp Side on Mmm! MONDAY: Back At It In April

    Happy Monday, All! I hope wherever this post finds you, you’re having a great day after a great weekend. Yes, it was Easter – and a beautiful one in the Quad Cities! – but it was also Opening Day and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field… It just doesn’t get much better than that, friends. The first thing Zuno and I did yesterday was put our “gear” on. I’m not a Puppy Mom who dresses […]

When you sum it up like that, you can’t help but sigh… a sigh of exhaustion, a sigh of relief, a sigh of satisfaction.
