For the past 26 years Sharon has devoted her time to the Newsroom. She has worked her way up from editor, to producer and most recently Executive Producer for WPDE ABC 15. She has worked in several markets, including New York, Palm Springs, Reno, Las Vegas and most recently Myrtle Beach. Last year Sharon decided it was time to hang up her news hat and teach the next generation of journalists.
This business is a young person’s business, one she has outgrown, and she wanted to make sure the journalists she was passing the torch onto received the best education possible.
Sharon has been teaching at Coastal Carolina University for a year and absolutely loves what she does. Teaching is so rewarding and she is so glad she answered the calling and looks forward too many wonderful years at Teal Nation.
