Amanda Ruiz became a part of the KCBD team in late December of 2017. She is excited to be in Lubbock and to be a part of such a news-driven team.
Coming from a long way from home, New York, she is eager to see what Texas will have in store for her. She graduated from Penn State University with a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Political Science. During her time at Penn State, she became a reporter/anchor for WPSU’s Centre County Report and a reporter intern for ABC 27 WHTM. She covered a variety of stories that included the 2016 Presidential Election, shootings, and fires.
Her interest in news started when she started watching Good Morning America and the Today Show with her parents. She has always been interested in how complex and unpredictable the news can be ever since she was a young girl.
Amanda has always wanted to make a big move and is excited that Lubbock has become her new home.
