Natasha Acrie is a Pittsburgh, PA. native. As an adventurer, she is thrilled to learn and establish herself in Rapid City! Her love for journalism grew from participating in forensics throughout high school, where she won prepared speech competitions and overcame a fear of speaking in front of large crowds. She pursued broadcasting at Point Park University in Pittsburgh, PA and discovered her passion for TV, considering it the ultimate platform to inform and entertain the masses. She lives by the quote, “pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.” -Maya Angelou
Internships obtained at Fox 29 News in Philadelphia, PA and KDKA News in Pittsburgh, PA cultivated her ability to film, write, edit, and always surpass her comfort zone. Her affirmation grew towards the fact that her purpose in life is to be an effective storyteller. She has a great interest in creating compelling stories as well as engaging with diverse communities. As a self-starter, Natasha created a web series which showcased restaurants and their inspirations. She pulls her inspiration from TV personalities such as Oprah Winfrey, Wendy Williams, Anthony Bourdain, and NBC Today Show’s Sheinelle Jones.
In her free time, Natasha enjoys indulging in the local arts and eateries on almost every corner of Rapid City!
