Angie Miles started her broadcasting career as a disc jockey at a classic rock station while she attended the University of Virginia. During that same time, she waited tables at a hotel restaurant in the mornings and spun dance music in the club of that same hotel at night. She also learned about television as an intern in both production and in news reporting. In thirty years as a broadcast professional, she has shot video while hanging from towers at horse races, hosted political talk shows, produced eye-opening documentaries, and covered presidential inaugural events. She anchored for the DC-based New Urban Entertainment (NUE) in the early 2000s and has free-lanced for NBC and Reuters. She has anchored thousands of newscasts, always remembering that every story impacts real people’s lives indelibly. She has learned that every life is full of interesting stories, and that positive, inspiring news can work wonders.
When she’s not on the set, Angie is active in the community as a committed literacy educator for schools, parents and young learners. She believes in finding and maximizing every person’s given skills and talents. She is an avowed optimist and innovator who believes in adding hard work to high hopes. Ms. Miles’ pastimes include reading, writing, photography, genealogy, and building a better world. Her favorite DC places include the museums of the Smithsonian, the Jefferson Memorial at cherry blossom time, and that great little jazz club in an alley in the heart of Georgetown. While she enjoys many types of music– like the blues–her absolute favorite music is purple. She’s also rather fond of the DCW News theme and hopes you’re a fan, as well.
