Sharla joined the Newswatch 16 team in April, 2008 as a weekend sports anchor, and weekday sports reporter. Sharla also anchors Newswatch 16 at 7, on Saturday evenings.

Sharla's sports reporting career began in Athens, Georgia, where she was the beat reporter covering the University of Georgia’s football and baseball teams. A graduate of UGA, Sharla roots for her "Dawgs" every chance she gets and even had an English bulldog named Herschel Walker!

While in college, Sharla interned at FOX 5 in Atlanta, and later worked there as an associate sports producer. In May of 2007, Sharla headed back to her home state of Texas where she was the sports reporter and fill-in anchor for Abilene's ABC affiliate, KTXS.

Sharla enjoys living in northeastern Pennsylvania, and loves covering ALL of the sports this region has to offer, especially the NASCAR races at Pocono Raceway, the SWB RailRiders, the WBS Penguins, and of course, high school football! She grew up playing basketball, volleyball, running track, competing on a national cheerleading squad and loved gymnastics. She also enjoys snow skiing, and wakeboarding.

Every winter, and spring, watch for “Sharla’s Show & Tell,” a weekly segment which features Sharla trying new sports, and showing our viewers just how easy, or difficult, they can be!

When Sharla isn’t working, she loves relaxing and traveling with her husband, Todd.
