There is a reason Cosmopolitan named Alicia Quarles as one of the 50 forces who are, "the most forward-thinking, disruptive in all the right ways, rocking our minds and hearts, moving the world in the right direction people we know." Quarles was featured in their 50th anniversary issue alongside Hillary Clinton, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jessica Alba, Ava DuVernay, theSkimm founders and Taylor Swift.

Quarles runs her own multimedia production and consulting company, while also working as the Senior News Correspondent for “Daily Mail TV.” Her wide-ranging talents have led her to anchoring live from several Academy Awards, covering many White House Correspondents’ Dinners, field reporting from numerous Super Bowls and overseeing breaking news coverage on events such as Hurricane Sandy and the death of Whitney Houston. Additionally, she is a regular on MSNBC, works on special projects with Hearst, Meredith, Conde Nast and served as a Special Correspondent for “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider.” Quarles has anchored on Headline News and hosted specials on VH1 and Fuse.

Quarles isn't just an on-air personality. Her writing has been featured by some of the world’s largest news outlets across formats ranging from digital to print/newspapers and magazines. Those outlets include the Washington Post, Time, Refinery29, People, Essence, Google News, Yahoo News, USA Today and most recently interviewing and writing the cover story on Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for Ebony magazine.

Quarles graduated summa cum laude from the University of Southern California. After graduation, she accepted a position with the AP as a reporter and producer in Los Angeles. While there, she covered high-profile events such as the Golden Globes Grammys, Academy Awards, Billboard Awards and the death of President Reagan.
