My name is Amanda Atwell, a Broadcast Journalist from Fort Worth, Texas. I am currently the Weekend Sports Anchor at ABC 7 Amarillo. My primary interest is sports broadcast, but I love all forms of storytelling.
I graduated from the University of Texas in August of 2016. In my time at Texas, I was very involved with the sports branch of Texas Student Television. I also received the opportunity to intern with the sports department at KXAN, the NBC affiliate in Austin, as well as Time Warner Cable News (now Spectrum News). I am proficient with multiple editing softwares, as well as writing and shooting for sports and news broadcast.
Originally, I attended school to play collegiate soccer at Centenary College of Louisiana, majoring in Communications. I played my freshman and sophomore seasons before retiring due to a reoccurring knee injury. I then made the decision to transfer to the
University of Texas spring semester of my sophomore year to pursue my dream of becoming a sports reporter.
