Angie Angers is a video journalist based in the Manatee County newsroom.
Before joining Bay News 9, Angie began her career behind the scenes at WPRI 12 in Providence, Rhode Island. During her time in her home state, she covered stories across New England including the Boston Marathon Bombings and the Aaron Hernandez murder investigation.
She then picked up and moved south to work as a reporter and multimedia journalist at CBS 4 News in Gainesville. During her time in Gator Country, she focused on topics that are close to her heart, such as public education and the fight to end hunger. While she's not a native Floridian, Angie loves the Sunshine State and couldn't imagine living anywhere else.
Angie's favorite part of her job is connecting with people and hearing what matters the most to them. Her love for news reporting started in elementary school, when she used to hide behind the couch and watch the evening news, instead of finishing her homework.
When she's not in the newsroom, Angie is usually playing 18 at one of the local golf courses or spending time with her family. She's also a second-degree black belt and has trained in the martial arts along side her mom for almost all of her life. In her free time, Angie loves playing pick-up sports like kickball or volleyball.
