Amanda Aguilar

Weekend Anchor/MMJ

Savannah, Ga.

Amanda Aguilar joined WTOC in October 2019 as the weekend anchor/reporter.

Amanda came to WTOC after spending three years at KSNW in Wichita, Kan. She started as the central Kansas bureau reporter, covering more than 10 counties on her own. In June 2017, Amanda was promoted to KSNW’s morning reporter/fill-in anchor. Amanda has won several awards from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters for her stories, which included a controversial school superintendent resignation and coverage of the largest wildfire in the state’s history.

Before moving to Kansas, Amanda lived in Washington, D.C., earning her master’s degree in Journalism and Public Affairs at American University. While in D.C., Amanda interned at NBC Washington.

However, Amanda didn’t start out in television news. After graduating from Dominican University of California with her bachelor’s degree in Communication and Media Studies, Amanda worked as a reporter for the Pleasanton Weekly, an online and print newspaper.

Although Amanda has lived in different parts of the United States, California will always be home. Bay Area, like yee!

Amanda has a passion for youth mentoring, as well as mental health and suicide prevention awareness.

In her spare time, she enjoys taking dance classes, watching Netflix or eating (restaurant suggestions are welcome).

Amanda is excited to be in the Coastal Empire, and looks forward to meeting the community and telling their stories.
