The Altoona Mirror profiles WATM-TV (23) anchor and reporter Angie Boddorf.

A Clarion University of Pennsylvania graduate, her first job was as an assignment desk assistant and news writer at WTAE-TV (4) in Pittsburgh. She also did an internship at KDKA-TV (2).

Boddorf’s advice for aspiring TV reporters? “Take advantage of every opportunity you can during college. If you can get a part-time job in a newsroom, do it.”
