Amanda Gomez joined the KION News Channel 5/46 news team as evening anchor in December 2014. She came to KION from 23ABC in Bakersfield, where she anchored and produced the weekend news and reported during the week.
Amanda began her journalism career at News Channel 25 in Waco, Texas. She was hired as the weekend reporter and was later promoted to morning and midday anchor.
Even though Amanda is an Arizona Native, she considers California her second home and is thrilled to call the Central Coast home.
She also grew up riding horses and is a member of the Cowgirls Historical Foundation, whose mission is to preserve Western Heritage through volunteerism.
Amanda is eager to get involved in community events on the Central Coast and hopefully find opportunities to get back in the saddle.
