Angela Clooney

I am the Senior Photojournalist at WTSP-TV in the Tampa/St. Petersburg television market. I've won seven Suncoast Emmy Awards. I started my career at KMIZ-TV in Columbia, Missouri then moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico and worked at KOAT-TV. From there I moved to the Sunshine State and fell in love with the Tampa Bay area. I shoot, edit, run the satellite truck, run live trucks and backpacks, fly drones and enjoy teaching and being a mentor. After 30 years as a photojournalist, I still think it's one of the best jobs in the world.
