Celia Palermo joined the WQAD sports department in June 2019. Before moving to the Quad Cities, she covered news and sports at in Augusta, Georgia for two years at WRDW/WAGT where she had the chance to cover the Masters Tournament, Georgia, Clemson, and South Carolina football and basketball, as well as local and minor league sports teams.
She's a graduate of the University of Georgia where she studied Public Affairs Journalism, Sports Media, and Sports Management. But before becoming a Dawg, she grew up on the sunny beaches of Southern California where she grew to love UCLA, Golden State, San Jose Sharks, 49ers, and Giants, inspiring her sports broadcasting aspirations.
When she's not covering the Quad Cities sports scene, you can find her watching golf, talking about golf, reading about golf, or thinking about golf. She likes golf, can you tell? She's a California girl through and through, but has fallen in love with the Midwest and all it has to offer!
