Angela Poe Russell
Thrive Emcee, TV Journalist/Exec. Producer

Whether it’s interviewing a sitting president, co-hosting a daily television talk show, or developing innovative content, Angela has a remarkable ability to connect with people through the screen, face-to-face, on stage, or via the written word. She’s proven that ability through her twenty years as a multimedia journalist. Angela most recently co-hosted the iconic primetime television show “Evening” on KING-TV (NBC) and prior to that, “Take 5”, also on KING. She was involved in developing all aspects of this collaboration and was honored for her work with a prestigious Gracie Award in 2019, given by the Alliance for Women in Media for excellence in programming. She currently is a freelance content creator and public speaker, who believes strongly in the power of storytelling to educate and inspire.
