Angie Asimus

Based in Sydney, Angie Asimus is a reporter for Seven News.

She also presents weather on Friday and Saturday evenings alongside newsreader Melissa Doyle and Sydney sports director Jim Wilson.

Since joining the team in 2014 after five years with Seven News Queensland, Angie has covered a range of breaking stories, including the Lindt Café Siege, Bondi’s cyclone-strength storm and bushfires in the Blue Mountains.

Angie began her career in Townsville, where her work gained national coverage as she reported on cyclones and crocodiles.

As a result, she developed a keen interest in the weather and has since added to this knowledge by completing a Graduate Certificate in Climatology.

After her stint in the tropics, Angie moved to the Brisbane newsroom to cover the court round. There she reported on local and national cases, including the trial of surgeon Jayant Patel and former government minister Gordon Nuttall.

During her time in Brisbane, Angie also covered the devastating floods of 2011 as a weather presenter.

Her ongoing work as an investigative journalist also earned her a place among the finalists in the 2012 Clarion Awards.

In the summer of 2012, Angie began working as a newsreader, presenting the 6pm bulletin across Queensland.

She now regularly fills-in on Seven’s morning and afternoon news bulletins.

Angie grew up on a farm in Gundagai NSW, before moving to Sydney to complete a Media and Communications degree at the University of Sydney, majoring in English Literature and Art History.

Together, these experiences have helped Angie develop key skills as an accomplished MC.

She particularly enjoys speaking about the environment, health research and issues affecting rural communities.

When she’s not working, Angie enjoys trying her hand at creative writing, yoga and painting.
