Angie Lassman joined Fox 26 KNPN as the weekend meteorologist and weekday reporter in May 2014. In January 2015, Angie began working with anchor Alex Flippin on the 5:30 - 8:00 am show as the weekday morning meteorologist. Recently, the two teamed up for a new community interactive show named Off the Desk with Alex and Angie which airs Thursday's on the FOX 26 morning show.
Angie grew up in Fraser Michigan, a small town community located on the outskirts of Detroit. As part of the Fraser athletic program, Angie was recruited to play volleyball for Florida Institute of Technology and graduated from the university in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology. She continued on at FIT to earn her Master of Science degree in Meteorology in 2014.
While attending FIT Angie co-authored a chapter in the book titled Climate Change and Regional/Local Responses, was part of a scientific research team, a collegiate athlete, two-year team captain and a college instructor. As a facilitator for the FIT Department of Space Sciences, Angie educated Florida Division for Emergency Management officials and law enforcement on proper procedures and crisis management in case of a coronal mass ejection/space weather emergency.
Although Angie is a scientist she feels the rise of extreme weather has highlighted a need for more educated voices in the field of broadcast meteorology. She intends to utilize the TV weather platform to have a positive impact in the community, providing accurate and reliable weather forecasts, critical developing storm updates and vital safety information.
Angie is proud of beginning her career in the lovely community of Saint Joseph, Missouri. She has found that the people, the parks, the many summer events and the beautiful historic buildings have made Saint Joe feel like home.
In her spare time, Angie enjoys the beach, photography, traveling, and fashion but most of all Angie loves people. She is extremely calm under pressure, and has a positive outlook on everything. Angie hopes to inspire others to be fearless in life, to try new things, and to have fun doing it.
