Angela Poe Russell

Angela has never been one to follow a crowd (unless it’s to a great restaurant), and you’ll get to see her in action in her role as co-host of Evening.  

Angela joined Team Evening in March 2020. Beyond celebrating the diverse cuisine of the Northwest, Angela is most excited about highlighting what’s best about our community: the people making a difference, the innovators creating new experiences and the locations that inspire us.

Angela lives for making connections with people and she’s proven that ability through her 20 years as a multi-media journalist. Most recently, her work as the host of Take 5 on KING 5 earned her a national Gracie Award for on-air talent. 

Prior to this, Angela worked as journalist in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and in Seattle, where she won a Regional Emmy Award for Best Anchor. In 2010, she was one of the first wave of reporters after the earthquake in Haiti and her follow-up questions during an interview with President Barack Obama led to a response that made national headlines.

Angela is excited about being part of Team Evening, and can’t wait to shine a light on the people, events and issues that fuel our community.

When she’s not busy asking questions, Angela spends time with her husband and two daughters.

Fun facts: she's once guest co-hosted ABC's “The View,” and a few years ago, wrote a Lifetime movie. Favorite food? Pizza. Favorite Book? She can’t pick, but she has enjoyed "Return to Love" by Marianne Williamson and "The Invention of Wings" by Sue Monk Kidd.
