Anchor

School: University of Tampa
Hometown: Sarasota, Florida

Sophie started with TV6 in September of 2014 as an Anchor/Reporter for the Early, Tonight and Late Newscasts.

Sophie has a B.A from the University of Tampa in Communications with a minor in Journalism and a Masters degree in Journalism & Media Studies from University of South Florida - St. Petersburg. There she was a graduate assistant and liaison for the Edward R. Murrow Program for International Journalists.

Sophie's love for journalism began in high school where she anchored her morning news show "VTV" and worked as a sports reporter for the Sarasota Education Channel's program "Game-On Profiles".

As an undergrad at U. Tampa, Sophie never missed the opportunity to perform in dance concerts and theatrical productions such as "Sweet Charity". She was a staff writer and photojournalist all four years for the award-winning student newspaper The Minaret. Sophie also interned at two of Tampa's top news stations. She was an investigative reporting intern at ABC Action News WFTS and an i-team/producing intern at NBC WFLA News Channel 8.

When the Republican National Convention came to town in August 2012, Sophie was chosen as one of ABC's interns and was sent out for undercover work.

She is a die-hard baseball fan and enjoys going to live-sporting events, knitting, baking all kinds of goodies, and dancing/choreographing tap, ballroom and jazz.

Sophie is very excited to join the WLUC team here in Marquette and looks forward getting back on her skis and skates in the winter!
