Angie Moreschi is the host of the WEDU Emmy® winning medical series Smart Health. Ms. Moreschi is a national award-winning anchor, producer, reporter and host. Her powerful stories have changed laws, led to criminal charges, closed bad businesses and helped lead to the restructuring of an entire government agency. Her work has been recognized with four national awards, eight Emmy’s® and dozens of regional and local awards for excellence in journalism.
As a former anchor at WFTS TV for seven years, Ms. Moreschi is well known in Tampa for her versatile personality. She anchored both the ABC affiliate’s afternoon and morning newscasts. Angie also served as the station’s medical reporter for several years, doing stories that ranged from underwater childbirth to colon cancer awareness to helping people stay fit and healthy.
Ms. Moreschi has also conducted several investigations. In one Emmy® award-winning report called “A Dying Shame” she exposed deplorable practices at a Palmetto crematory. The facility ultimately closed after her reports. She also exposed the deadly consequences of cost saving measures being imposed by an HMO on doctors.
Prior to returning to Tampa in 2005, Angie worked at WTHR in Indianapolis as their Chief Investigative Reporter. While there, her 18-month investigation exposed serious problems at Indiana’s Child Protective Services. Her reports led to rare criminal charges against a caseworker, an overhaul of the agency and a new open records law which now helps to prevent CPS from covering up wrongdoing.
These stories won a series of national, regional and local awards, including a National Headliner for Outstanding Public Service, a Casey medal for meritorious journalism from the Casey Journalism Center for Families and Children, and the Medal of Freedom from the Investigative Reporters and Editors, its highest honor.
