Amanda Venegas joined the Action News team as a general assignment reporter in July 2012.

Amanda is a Valley native and graduated from Clovis High School. After graduation, she took off for the sandy beaches of San Diego and graduated with a BA in Journalism from San Diego State University. During her time in college, Amanda spent many hours interning at ABC30.

When she is not working on news stories, Amanda enjoys spending time with her husband and their two pugs. Amanda and her husband also enjoy backpacking and are looking forward to exploring Yosemite and beyond.
