Angie Asimus is a news and weather presenter for 7NEWS. Angie reads Seven News at 5 pm on Sundays and presents the weather during 6 pm news on weekdays as well as a guest newsreader on Australia’s top-rated breakfast show, Sunrise.
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.
A country girl at heart, Angie grew up on a farm in Gundagai NSW and 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.
Together, these experiences have helped Angie develop key skills as an accomplished MC, where she MC’d the launch of Emirates A380 in Brisbane, Leukaemia Foundation Gala Ball and Australian Turf Club Fashions on the Field. Currently, as an Ambassador for the children's charity 'Act for Kids', Angie regularly holds events to raise for this important cause.
In 2020, Angie welcomed her first child, Austin into the world. When she’s not working, Angie enjoys trying her hand at creative writing, yoga and painting.
