Amanda Curran Wiki – Amanda Curran Biography
Amanda Curran is an American meteorologist currently working for WSFA 12 since July 2014. She is found on WSFA weekdays during Alabama Live! and First at Four. She grew up in New Hampshire and spent four years in Vermont. At Lyndon State, she worked for the Vermont Center for Community Journalism (VCCJ-News 7), a student-run news station broadcasting to cities and towns in northeastern Vermont. During her time at the VCCJ, she prepared forecasts for the station’s Emmy Award-winning 3 pm, 5:30 pm, and online newscasts. She also spent two summers interning at her local television station, WMUR-TV.
She was named the Best Weather Anchor of the year for 2017 by the Associated Press. In 2015, she received the first runner-up for the same category.
Recently, she has earned the American Meteorological Society’s Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) designation, professional recognition of the quality of her weather broadcasts. Among radio and television meteorologists, the CBM designation is sought as a mark of distinction and recognition; the AMS grants the CBM designation to broadcast meteorologists who meet established criteria for scientific competence and effective communication skills in their weather presentations. To earn the CBM, broadcasters must hold a degree in meteorology or equivalent from an accredited college or university, pass a rigorous written examination, and have their on-air work reviewed to assess graphical content, explanation, and presentation skills.
On top of her weather duties, Amanda loves the opportunity to go out into the community and meet new people. In her free time, she enjoys playing her saxophone, watching football, and spending time at the local bark park with her border collie, Tanner.
She was awarded the Alabama Associated Press Best Weather Anchor – 2017 (Runner up 2015)
