Amanda St. Hilaire Biography – Amanda St. Hilaire Wiki
Amanda St. Hilaire is an American journalist and an investigative reporter who pursues stories on public records and open meetings. She has been part of the FOX6 team since July 2018. Her interest in journalism started when she was 12. Her parents took her to school board meetings, which they attended to advocate for students with disabilities. She took notes, asked the board members questions after the meetings, and wrote stories about what happened.
She did her first investigative report at the age of 15. Her parents announced they were moving our family of eight from New Hampshire to Pennsylvania. She promptly dug up every fact I could find about the area, made arrangements to live with a friend’s family, and presented my findings to my parents. They congratulated her on her efforts, informing her that she was still required to move with them and her five brothers, and suggested she channels her energy into journalism.
Shortly after graduation, she began her first television news job at WTOL11 in Toledo, Ohio. She started her investigative career tere officially. Through public records, she managed to expose flaws in the state’s school vaccination tracking system and uncover the City of Toledo fraudulent food expenses.

She also began a weekly “Restaurant Report” segment, along with the market’s first television station podcast, called On Deadline. She went on to hold local leaders accountable through reporting on public expenses, nursing home violations, costly towing practices, efforts to skirt laws governing transparency, and gaps in the Capitol’s system for reporting sexual harassment.
She is a recipient of the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accounts “Truth in Finances Award, along with regional honors from the Associated Press and the Mid-Atlantic Emmy Awards.
