Amanda Venegas joined the Action News team as a general assignment reporter in July 2012. Amanda is thrilled to be back "home" in the Central Valley.
Amanda is a Valley native and graduated from Clovis High School. After graduation, she took off for the sandy beaches of San Diego and graduated with a BA in Journalism from San Diego State University. During her time in college, Amanda spent many hours interning at ABC30.
Amanda began her television career at KTVQ-TV in Billings, Montana, where she worked as a reporter and anchor. Montana is also where she met her husband Matt.
Now back in the Valley, she is readjusting to the triple-digit temperatures.
Amanda is looking forward to reporting in the community where she grew up. You can send her story ideas on her Facebook page or via Twitter.
When she is not working on news stories, Amanda enjoys spending time with Matt and their two pugs. Amanda and Matt also enjoy backpacking and are looking forward to exploring Yosemite and beyond.
