Amanda Aguilar
Amanda Aguilar joined the Action News team in October of 2021. She is the reporter for Action News AM Live.

Prior to joining the ABC30 Action News team, Amanda was a reporter/anchor at WTOC in Savannah, GA. During her time in The Hostess City, she helped bring awareness to the anti-Asian attacks happening nationwide. The City of Savannah created its first Asian American and Pacific Islander Task Force following Amanda's coverage. She also lead coverage on the death of Ahmaud Arbery, which she and her team won an Emmy for in 2021.

Before Georgia, Amanda spent almost three years at KSN-TV in Wichita, KS, where she covered wildfires, tornadoes and blizzards.
