Amanda Goodman anchors at 5, 5:30, 6, 10, and 11. She comes to 9 On Your Side from the CBS affiliate in Amarillo, Texas.
As a mom of two young children, Amanda decided to start writing a weekly blog called AnchorMOM as a way to connect and share with other moms in eastern North Carolina. That blog led to a weekly on-air segment where Amanda talks about the good, the bad and the ugly of parenting. The topics come straight from the viewers...or inside her own chaotic home:-)
Through AnchorMOM, Amanda realized there is an epidemic plaguing our children today -- bullying. She developed "The Bully Project," a special series that tackles this seemingly neverending issue. Whether it's an emotional interview with a victim, a candid conversation with a bully or a heated debate with an administrator, the anti-bullying initiative is a top priority for Amanda.
While away from the anchor desk, Amanda is committed to the community working with March of Dimes, GO Red For Women, the Heart Truth and Stand for the Silent.
Amanda is a die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fan. This provides many arguments with Cowboys fan Brian Bailey during football season. She's excited to be living in Pirate country now and is looking forward to tailgating at the football games!
A Pennsylvania native, Amanda graduated from Slippery Rock University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication. Funny name, but great school!
Amanda spends her free time with her husband and their two children, Giana and Nicolas. If it's warm out, you can find Amanda and her family on the beautiful beaches of the Crystal Coast.
