Angela Padgett has always loved television and is thrilled to join the Carolina News staff this semester to help create it.
She is from Spartanburg, SC and an avid Gamecocks and NASCAR fan. Her ultimate goal is to work as a reporter/producer or public relations representative in NASCAR.
Angela has interned at WLTX in Columbia and is in her second year with Gamecock Productions, creating video features and highlights for GamecocksOnline.com and contributing to reality web shows and season recap DVDs for the athletic department.
Before coming to University of South Carolina, she worked for WYFF4 in Greenville, SC as a sideline reporter for High School Playbook during her senior year of high school.
Angela will finish her degree in broadcast journalism in May with a minor in psychology. After graduation, she hopes to continue her work in writing and production for television in sports, morning news, and sitcoms, and plans to return to school in the future to pursue a higher degree in psychology.
