About Angela Russell

To make a long story short...

I ask A LOT of questions...of myself and others. What I learn, I SHARE...through stories. . I used to anchor the news in several cool cities including Seattle, Philadelphia, Washington, DC and Mobile, Alabama. I've covered everything from the highs of World Series and Super Bowl wins, to the lows of deadly earthquakes and hurricanes.

President Obama once gave me ten minutes of his time for an interview. However, I'm most proud of what I'm doing NOW: Writing a screenplay, giving speeches, and being a mom.

The LONG version..

Angela Russell is an American television journalist, who has reported and anchored news in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and most recently Seattle. She Co-anchored KIRO-TV’s evening news broadcasts with Steve Raible for 6 years, where her work expanded into worldwide issues. In 2010, she was one of the first wave of reporters in Haiti after the earthquake, where she followed the rescue and recovery effort as well as the local response and impact. Her follow up questions during a 2011 interview with President Obama led to a response that made national headlines. A few years later, when the Affordable Care Act became law, Angela hosted a live town hall on the subject and filed reports for a half hour special on the issue.

Angela is most proud of her work on a documentary called "Five Weeks That Changed my Life" It followed the lives of several woman enrolled in a program designed to help them become self-sufficient. Through education, support, and ultimately, a job; the women not only changed their lives, but the trajectory of their children's lives as well.

When Angela isn't out in the community speaking to young people or hosting fundraisers, she is proud to call her herself a soccer mom and then some to her two daughters and a hamster named Magic.
