Sommer Brokaw

Staff Writer

Location icon United States of America

I've worked as a staff writer for newspapers for 10 years. I worked as an education beat/general assignment reporter for the Charlotte Sun, a Pulitzer Prize-winning community newspaper in Charlotte County for three years. Prior to the Sun, I worked for seven years at two African-American weeklies including The Charlotte Post based in Charlotte, NC and The Triangle Tribune in the Raleigh/Durham area. In between, working fulltime at these papers, I did freelance work for the Tampa Bay Times and the Florida Courier.

I'm now based in the Orlando, FL area where I work as a reporter for United Press International covering national and international news. I also continue to do stories for the Sun as a freelancer and take photos for Lake Mary Life Magazine.

I love travel and new adventures and over the past decade, I’ve enjoyed telling stories that inform the community about new things, expose the triumph of the human spirit and inspire compassion.
