Angela Fitzgerald is New Host of Wisconsin Life Television Series
This fall's new season of Wisconsin Life on Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) brings plenty to get excited about. New adventures await, bringing us closer to the people and places that make our state such a great place to live and explore. And, this year, the show has a new host to help guide the way.
Angela Fitzgerald joins Wisconsin Life as the series' host for its fifth season, inviting viewers along to visit new locations, meet people whose passions, hobbies and expertise celebrate the best of our state, and introduce new stories from every corner of Wisconsin.
"I'm excited to experience the people and places of Wisconsin, while introducing our viewers to the diversity that exists in our state," Fitzgerald said. "It's been a blast filming in locations around Wisconsin so far, and I look forward to sharing all those stories with viewers across Wisconsin."
In addition to her new role as host of Wisconsin Life, Fitzgerald is a member of the Madison College faculty, as well as a professional financial educator with Summit Credit Union. Her work in the field of financial literacy led her to be a founder of Brown Girl, Green Money - a social network of women of color working to support the achievement and pursuit of personal finance goals.
The award-winning WPT series dedicated to telling personal and engaging stories about Wisconsin people and places begins its new season Thursday, Oct. 5, but viewers can start watching exclusive new segments online now at WisconsinLife.org.
Episodes from the show's fourth season are airing now on Thursday evenings at 7 on WPT.
