Angie Bado

A long-time resident of McKinney, Angie combined her passion for the news and her community, and founded TownSquareBuzz.com, an online hyper-local news portal, in 2005. She believes in the power of the press and that vibrant journalism keeps people informed and holds leaders accountable. The financial cuts that have been a part of news rooms across the country in recent years are, to some degree, dangerous to the public's interest and to personal liberty. As owner and publisher of TSB, she believes it's the job of TSB to find and tell the real story. A native of Pennsylvania, Angie is the proud mom of three great (of course) adults and is an avid reader, enjoys music of all kinds and describes herself as the consummate "foodie". Life is too short, so enjoy!
