Amanda Mueller joined the Eyewitness News team in January 2018. She’s known she wanted to be a journalist since fourth grade, when she wrote a hard-hitting expose for the school’s newspaper on the weirdest things janitors find in the school’s garbage.
Amanda was born in Baltimore, but grew up in Amish county Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
She got her start in journalism as a high-school intern at her hometown’s local cable station, Blue Ridge Channel 11. She then went on to complete internships WTAJ in State College, PA; and ABC27 in Harrisburg, PA. Before graduating college, she took a job as an associate producer at WGAL Channel 8 in Lancaster. She then moved on to FOX43 WPMT in York as a producer and in-studio reporter, and eventually worked her way to executive producer there.
Most recently, she took two years to work in public relations in Philadelphia, but realized after only a few months she missed news, and took a weekend position reporting morning traffic for KYW, the CBS-affiliate in Philadelphia.
Amanda then re-located to the Tri-State to return to news full-time, and is now Eyewitness News’ weekend anchor and nightside reporter.
When she’s not on-air, you can find Amanda on the water as she paddles toward her goal of kayaking in all 50 states, exploring new cities (and foods!), exploring outdoors, or at the local library.
Wherever she goes, her rescue dog, Porter, isn’t far behind. Of course she found him while researching (what else?) a news story.
