Summer Dashe has the story.

You can catch Summer anchoring WPDE ABC 15 News weekday evenings at 5,6,7 and 11. She was previously the anchor of Good Morning Carolinas Weekend. As a true reporter at heart, you’ll still often find her live in the field investigating stories that matter to you. Her reports have earned four first place awards from RTDNA of the Carolinas, a South Carolina Broadcasters STAR Award, and a Texas Lone Star Emmy.

Her rapport with law enforcement and genuine interest in people serves her well in earning sources and building a network of tipsters. She learned quickly that relationship building is one of the most important skills a journalist can possess. She has landed major exclusive interviews like with a convicted murderer, a tight-lipped police chief  who resigned in the middle of a sexual assault scandal, and friends and family closest to some of the community’s biggest stories.

Summer is a newsroom leader who brings innovative ideas and a spark for storytelling to her team. She launched a cooking show on GMC called “Whip Up Your Weekend” that has now been on the air for two years. She also launched the weekly Facebook Live segments Saturday and Sunday mornings. In 2018 Dashe helped launch her station’s first investigative team. She is in charge of storytelling training for ABC 15 Investigates.

She may be a native Californian, but Summer Dashe will be the first to tell you the south has her heart. Summer is an animal lover and mom of a very sweet puppy named Sundae. You’ll often find her volunteering with various rescue organizations in her free time or American Heart Association. She also enjoys FaceTiming with her sister and niece who live in Nashville. She spends time catching up with her brother, mom, and dad who all live in California, too. Summer says she could make friends with a wall! She’s very friendly and hopes you’ll contact her with story ideas, job opportunities, or just to say hello.
