You can catch Summer anchoring Good Morning Carolinas on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 7-8 and 9-10 on WPDE ABC 15 in Myrtle Beach, SC. During the week you’ll find her live in the field working as a multimedia journalist. She focuses on investigative and special reports, as well as breaking news and feature day turns. Her reports have earned two first place awards from RTDNA of the Carolinas 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.
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. She also enjoys FaceTiming with her sister and baby 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.
