Amanda O'Hara grew up in North Carolina and she is proud to be working in her home state as a health reporter for the "Healthy Living" franchise segments with Spectrum News.

Amanda joined the Spectrum News team in 2015. You can often find her with a camera in one hand and a mic in the other, covering health and fitness news.

Prior to joining Spectrum News, she was a "jack of all trades" at the Fox owned and operated Charlotte affiliate, FOX 46.  There, she camera-operated behind the scenes, occasionally floor-directed, and she reported on-air, covering entertainment and events news, along with general news assignments.

Amanda also proudly served in the United States Air Force from 2005 to 2012. 

Amanda enjoys spending her time with family and friends (especially furry friends because she loves dogs), listening to music, and reading.

You can watch "Healthy Living" on Saturdays and Sundays, :45 after during the odd-numbered hours.
