NSC grad reporting from Georgia

Amanda Castro, ’12, recently joined the 41 NBC/WMGT news team in Macon, Georgia as a reporter and fill-in anchor. 

Castro graduated from the University of Central Florida in Orlando with a degree in broadcast journalism. Since she joined the morning announcement team at her elementary school, Amanda knew she wanted to work in the news industry.

While in Orlando, Castro worked as a reporter and web producer for FM 96.5 News/Talk WDBO. She covered many stories affecting the Central Florida community including the high profile Casey Anthony trial. Although she loved radio, Castro wanted to branch out into television and interned at the ABC and CBS affiliates in Orlando. In addition to internship experience, she also anchored, reported and produced for UCF’s weekly newscast, Knightly News.

In her free time, Amanda loves to read (she’s a huge Harry Potter fan), go shopping and spend time with her friends and family.
