Sharrie joined the Action News team in March 2014 as an anchor of the 5:00 pm newscast and reporter on Action News at 11. Sharrie's work is rooted in strong reporting, both in-studio and live from the scene. She anchored on location from several Big Stories in Philadelphia, including the 2017 N.F.L. Draft, the 2016 Democratic National Convention and Pope Francis' visit to the World Meeting of Families in 2015. She has also traveled around the country, reporting from the first Presidential Debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and the inauguration of President Trump. Sharrie was also honored to have the opportunity to interview legendary ABC News host Barbara Walters when she signed off the air for the last time.
Before arriving in Philadelphia, Sharrie was the weekend anchor and weekday reporter at KTVT-TV in Dallas, Texas. While in Dallas, Sharrie covered major events that made national and international headlines, including Texas' record-breaking winter ice storms and Super Bowl XLV. Prior to working in North Texas, Sharrie spent three years in Miami covering a gamut of stories....from traveling to Haiti in the wake of the four hurricanes of 2008, and later the 2010 earthquake, to covering legal trials of the rich and famous. Sharrie was also front and center when all eyes were on the Miami Heat, covering Shaquille O'Neal's departure in 2008, and LeBron James' much-anticipated decision to join the team in 2010. Success South Florida Magazine selected Sharrie for the "Top 40 Under 40," and she was featured on the publication's cover. With a passion for knowledge and information, Sharrie has a gift for getting the people she interviews to open up and tell their story.
Sharrie's work has also taken her to Birmingham, Alabama, where she was an anchor/reporter for both news and sports at WVTM-TV, and prior to that, Jackson, Tennessee, where she was a news anchor at WBBJ-TV. She earned her undergraduate degree in broadcasting communications from the University of Tennessee. In fact, she began her journalism career while still in college, producing feature stories on Tennessee Volunteer athletes for Fox Sports Net South. In September of 2017, Sharrie was presented the University of Tennessee Alumni Promise Award.
Sharrie enjoys traveling (she can't wait to travel to Africa), listening to live music (Eryka Badu, Blake Shelton and Maxwell are among her favorites) and attending major sporting events. A native of Albany, Georgia, she is the product of a close-knit family which includes her parents, three siblings and now five nieces and one nephew. In her free time, Sharrie is an active volunteer for many community groups and charities, and is passionate about mentoring young girls. Sharrie's parents are truly her role models but she also has a deep admiration for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. One of her favorite quotes from Dr. King is, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." -Letter From Birmingham Jail.
