Sophie is thrilled to be in Albany and join FOX 31 as a Multimedia Journalist. She comes from the small town of Clinton, South Carolina, but spent the last three years living in South Carolina’s capital, Columbia. It is in Columbia where Sophie got most of her journalistic experience.
She recently graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and minor in Sport and Entertainment Management.
During her time at USC, she interned with WFXL’s sister station WACH Fox, where she grew a love for its morning show Good Day Columbia. She also served as an emcee for Gamecock Athletics and was one of ten students to represent the school while MSNBC covered the South Carolina primary elections.
Sophie may be from South Carolina, but do not let her southern charm fool you. She is a dual citizen of the United States and the United Kingdom. Her mum is from England, so if you see her out, ask for her best British accent impression. She says it’s pretty good!
She competed for the title of Miss South Carolina in 2016 where she promoted the platform of “Making Facilities more Accessible for Individuals with Disabilities.” She is very passionate about serving others and hopes to continue her work in Southwest Georgia.
Sophie looks forward to telling the stories of Albany. She would love your help, too. Send her an e-mail with any ideas!
