Angela joined CBS13 in March 2016 as a general assignment reporter. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue her storytelling career in her home state.
Born and raised in the Bay Area, Angela attended San Francisco University’s Broadcast Journalism program, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. There, she also received the highest honors from the Broadcast Education Association for her investigative storytelling. Angela credits the mentorship she received at KTVU and KPIX for her achievements, along with her passion for giving a voice to the unheard.
After graduating from SF State in 2011, Angela quickly worked her way up from an intern to a news writer at KPIX in San Francisco. Learning from some of the best in the business, Angela’s news experience landed her an on-air reporting position at KNVN/KHSL’s Redding bureau in 2014.
Angela was a one-woman band in Redding; she shot, edited and wrote all her stories. She covered several high-profile cases around Shasta County, including missing baby Ember Graham, the storage bin child murders in 2015 and the Shane Miller case. Angela also extensively covered the drought and Lake Shasta’s declining water levels. Angela’s stories have been featured on NBC News and other TV news channels across the country.
During her two years in Redding, Angela didn’t just tell peoples’ stories; she became part of the story. Angela has worked extensively with One Safe Place and the Good News Rescue Mission. Being involved with the community is something Angela enjoys and is passionate about.
Angela loves to spend her free time with her family and friends, and in the outdoors. She loves to hike scenic trails, play water sports and practice her shooting at the gun range. Angela also loves going on road trips, and exploring the food scene wherever she goes. Have any recommendations? Send her an email!
Angela is excited to be calling Sacramento her new home, and can’t wait to explore everything it has to offer.
You can watch Angela’s reports weekdays at 4 p.m., 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. and at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. on weekends.
