Excited to join the WHAM team Amanda Valdes is back in her home state working as a general assignment reporter.
Her dream to become a reporter started when she was young. Her family always emphasized the importance of watching the news and being up to date with current events.
Her reporting journey has allowed her to meet people from all works of life. Prior to coming back to New York, Amanda worked at KCOY in California.
She covered the major wildfires that plagued the area. When the mayor of a city was the target of a hate crime she was the first one to uncover the story.
She's also worked at News 12 Westchester as an assignment editor and WCBS-TV as a desk assistant.
On her days off you can find her venturing out in the Rochester area.
Make sure to say hello if you see her or drop her an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
