Morning News Host
Angela King is the local host of Morning Edition.
She’s been a part of the northwest news scene since the early 1990s. A proud University of Washington alumna, with degrees in broadcast journalism and American ethnic studies, she started her career as a news writer in Seattle, before becoming a reporter and anchor in Seattle, Portland and Albuquerque.
Angela's work has been honored by such groups as the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, the Society of Professional Journalists, and the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. In 2009, U.W.'s Viewpoint Magazine also named her as one of the “Top 40 to Watch.” "I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for the University of Washington," says Angela. "That's why it's so nice to come back home, where it all started."
In addition to her work as a journalist, Angela is an independent documentary producer and has contributed her talents to a variety of local organizations such The UW Educational Opportunity Program/Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity, Seattle City Club and Neighborhood House.
Angela's interests outside of work include candle making, Prince, puzzles of any kind and grandchildren.
