Articulate. Thorough. Fun. Perhaps three key words of many that could describe stellar journalist Markette Sheppard, whose appearances on Great Day Washington can take on both serious and light topics with an equal amount of skill and grace. Her ability to manage guests and clearly explain sometimes complex topics is no small feat in a hyper-educated and overly wonkified market like the Washington, D.C., area. It all started when Sheppard used her social media savvy to win hundreds of thousands of votes in ABC’s “Live! with Kelly” co-host search, making it to the top four. From there she got offers to contribute to The Today Show and other national franchises, and eventually landed her Good Day Washington hosting gig in the fall of 2015. And not only can Sheppard work her magic on air, but she’s also an entrepreneur whose Messenger Beauty cosmetics company sells all-natural products online. Like we said: She’s thorough.
