Sharon Carpenter is an award-winning broadcast journalist, TV host and producer originally from the UK. She is currently one of the main UK & USA presenters of HQ TRIVIA, the worldwide phenomenon daily quiz show app developed by Vine creators Rus Yusupov & Colin Kroll.
Throughout her career Sharon has made huge waves in America as an on-air personality for some of the country’s biggest networks including CBS, BET, VH1, BBC America & Sean 'P Diddy' Combs' REVOLT TV.
From London, Sharon moved to New York City to study at Pace University, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a BBA degree in business management. Starting out in broadcast news as an associate producer for WWOR-TV, she quickly advanced, landing a producer position at BET News. With dreams of working in-front of the camera, Sharon soon transitioned, using her expertise in business and finance when she became a reporter for MARKETWATCH on CBS. Within a year, Carpenter returned to BET but this time as one of the network’s signature anchors. There, her profile grew tremendously as she hosted daily updates, long-form specials and delivered breaking news on the top-rated entertainment show 106 & PARK. She went on to report for BBC WORLD NEWS AMERICA and, later, to help launch Diddy’s new music network REVOLT, as the lead news host.
Sharon recently made her acting debut, appearing as herself on the Fox prime-time smash EMPIRE. Fans couldn’t get enough of her appearance on the drama – Twitter exploded and her name quickly became a trending topic.
Back in her
real-life day job as a journalist, she can be seen covering star-studded red
carpets as a pop culture host on BBC America and sharing her strong opinions on
entertainment’s hottest topics as a regular contributor on THE WENDY WILLIAMS
SHOW. Behind-the-scenes, Sharon works as a television producer and is
