WSFA 12 News is pleased to announce the addition of Amanda Curran to the WSFA Doppler 12 StormVision team.

Curran is from New Hampshire and graduated from Lyndon State College in Vermont. There, she received her Bachelor's Degree in Atmospheric Sciences and her Associate's Degree in Television Studies.

At Lyndon State, Amanda worked for the Vermont Center for Community Journalism (VCCJ-News 7), a student-run news station broadcasting to cities and towns in northeastern Vermont.

During her time at the VCCJ, she prepared forecasts for the station's Emmy Award winning 3 p.m., 5:30 p.m., and online newscasts.

Curran was honored with the prestigious Jim Cantore Scholarship while at Lyndon. Cantore, who has a national following at The Weather Channel, is an Adjunct Professor at Lyndon.

Curran has developed from one-on-one training with Cantore and will bring the same style and energy to her forecasts.

"Amanda Curran is a talented meteorologist with amazing potential. She has studied for years and is a great addition to our veteran Doppler 12 StormVision team." says WSFA 12 News Director Scott Duff. "I know our viewers will enjoy her work and getting to know her. I look forward to seeing her get involved in our communities forecasting the weather."

Curran has replaced Monica Tassoni and will join WSFA 12 News at Noon on Tuesdays through Fridays, WSFA 12 News First at Four on Fridays and WSFA 12 News at 6:00pm and WSFA 12 News at 10:00pm on Saturdays. She debuted during WSFA 12 News at Noon on Tuesday, August 5, 2014.

"Amanda is an excellent addition to the Doppler 12 StormVision team," reiterated WSFA 12 News General Manager Collin R. Gaston. "Her passion for learning and enthusiasm for her craft will make her a valuable team member and help the Doppler 12 StormVision team fulfill their ultimate goal of keeping the viewers of Central Alabama informed and protected."

Other than her passion for weather, Curran has a love for music, sports and animals. In her free time, Amanda enjoys playing her saxophone, watching football and exploring the area with her newly adopted dog, Tanner.
