Amanda Castro - Anchor/Reporter
(478) 745-4141 ext. 308
Amanda Castro moved to the Song and Soul of the South in July 2012 when she joined the 41NBC news team. She is originally from Florida, but is excited to call Middle Georgia home!
Amanda anchors the 41NBC News at 6 and News at 11. Prior to the evening shift, she woke up dark and early to anchor Daybreak.
She started at 41NBC as a reporter and covered many important stories to the community, including covering the political strife in Gordon, the controversial Macon police officer involved shooting, updates on the Macon-Bibb County government consolidation, and the Pamela Moss murder trial in Jones County. She is the beat reporter for Bibb, Baldwin, and Wilkinson counties.
Amanda graduated from the University of Central Florida in Orlando in 2012 with a degree in broadcast journalism. She worked as a reporter and web producer for FM 96.5 News/Talk WDBO. While there, she covered the high profile Casey Anthony murder trial and the Trayvon Martin shooting death. She also interned at WFTV and WKMG in Orlando.
Amanda loves hanging out in downtown Macon, trying out new restaurants, and playing trivia at Mellow Mushroom. She?s also a big bookworm (she's a huge Harry Potter fan!). When she's not working, you'll most likely find her playing with her cat Lily, shopping, or laying out by the pool if it is warm enough.
Amanda loves to tell stories, especially ones that are important to you and impact the community. Feel free to contact her for any story ideas. She wants to hear from you!
