Amanda Bossard joined News 12 The Bronx/Brooklyn in November 2015 as an anchor/reporter. Amanda grew up “across the river” in New Jersey, and is so excited to be covering the city she knows and loves.
Prior to joining News 12, Amanda worked for WAND-TV in Central Illinois as the station’s Champaign Bureau Chief and fill-in anchor. She also completed internships at WIBW-TV in Topeka, Kansas, WMAQ-TV in Chicago, and CBS Local Media.
Amanda graduated cum laude from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism with degrees in Broadcast Journalism, Political Science and Spanish.
When she’s not anchoring a newscast or reporting from the field, Amanda loves to spend time with family and friends, try new restaurants, and catch up on movies and books.
