Amanda Starrantino Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education
Amanda Starrantino was born in 1992, in Los Angeles, California, USA. She is somewhat secretive about herself, and as a result, her exact birth date remains a secret. The daughter of Maurice Starrantino and his wife Karen, Amanda is of Italian ancestry, and has four siblings, but there are no further details about her parents and her siblings.
Amanda went to La Reina High School, from which she matriculated in 2009, and subsequently enrolled at Chapman University, from which she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in broadcast journalism in 2013.
Her journalistic career began in 2011, when she joined KTLA-TV in California as an intern, but remained at the station for just the next four months when her contract expired. She waited until February next year for her next engagement, becoming an intern at ABC 7 Los Angeles, also known as KABC, for another four months, and then moved to WJLA-TV, headquartered in Washington D.C., where she honed her journalistic skills for another three months before it was time to move forward.
From WJLA-TV, Amanda joined as an intern at Orange County Register, and in March 2013, she was officially hired by the Orange County Register, having been given the prestigious Orange County Press Club Best College Journalist Award and Scholarship in 2011 & 2012.
Rise to Prominence
Amanda’s hard work and dedication saw her cover major stories in Orange County. Various TV stations spotted her, and after three months as a freelance writer for the outlet, she eventually moved to South Bend, Indiana to join ABC 57 as a multi-media journalist.
A year later, Amanda returned to California to work as a reporter, news anchor, and weather forecaster at KSBY-TV in San Louis Obispo.
She served in the position until May 2016, covering many stories, including Californian wildfires, and the historic drought effects on the state, and stories that deal with local crime.
After her contract with KSBY ended, Amanda left California for Indiana once again. This time, she joined WRTV as Morning News Anchor, headquartered in Indianapolis.
