Amanda Curran joined WSFA 12 News in July 2014 as a Meteorologist. Before moving to the Heart of Dixie, Amanda grew up in New Hampshire and most recently spent four years in Vermont. There she graduated with her Bachelor's Degree in Atmospheric Sciences and her Associate's Degree in Television Studies from Lyndon State College.
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 3pm, 5:30pm, and online newscasts. Amanda also spent two summers interning at her local television station, WMUR-TV.
You can watch Amanda on WSFA weekdays during Alabama Live! and First at Four.
On top of her weather duties, Amanda also heads out to local schools to award a deserving teacher with the weekly Class Act award. She loves the opportunity to go out into the community and meet new people. You can catch her stories each Monday night during the 5pm newscast.
In 2016, Amanda was named first runner up for the Best Weather Anchor award from the Associated Press.
In her free time, Amanda enjoys playing her saxophone, watching football (go Patriots!!) and spending time at the local bark park with her border collie, Tanner.
