TV Host

Angela (a.k.a. "Angie") has been a TV Host and Personality since 1996, after competing at Miss Hawai'i for the 2nd year in a row.  She was known as "Angie from Hit TV" on a local entertainment spotlight that had a format similar to MTV and VH-1.  Angie interviewed celebrities and musicians that came into town including Babyface, No Doubt, Cypress Hill, After 7, Ice T, Dishwalla, Hall and Oates, among many others. She even welcomed Michael Jackson upon arrival before he played at the Aloha Stadium for the HIStory Tour.  Later, Angela was known as Host "Angie Baseball" on the Emmy-nominated series, "Road to the Show", where she interviewed major and minor league baseball players in the Hawai'i Winter Baseball League.

As the eighth-born of ten children, Angela, along with her six sisters, have alternated as guest hosts on the popular Telly Award-winning, magazine-format TV show that is aired statewide in Hawai'i.  What started merely as an idea in 2004 quickly evolved into a household staple on televisions every Sunday.  While Angela resided in Hawai'i, until 2006, she was a Host/Interviewer/Producer on the show, featuring her own segment called, "Angie's Album", where she interviewed notable celebrities and prominent figures around the state.  Today, she lives in Southern California with her husband and four children, but returns home to the islands several times a year to shoot new episodes of the family talk show.  She enjoys being a Guest Host and working alongside her sisters in a professional setting. 

Growing up, the four sisters, Tess, Bernadette, Rose, and Angela all played on the Varsity high school Basketball team and ran Cross Country together.  In their college years, they started an all-girl rock band called, High Tide.
