We saw a lot of very large pot plants being cut up and hauled off today. So ironic that it was a house just down the street from the home where George and Cindy Anthony live. Needless to say, I was quite familiar with the neighborhood after spending so much time there when Caylee was missing.

Fun day meeting some of the latest grad of UCF's medical school.  It's unusual and encouraging how many of them are staying in Central Florida for their residency and hope to practice here. Good for our community to have home-grown talent!

I LOVE Happy endings. Roanin was taken in by a woman who has 5 adopted children and now 3 adopted dogs.  Obviously she has a heart for taking in those who need a home and some love.  People like that have me at hello:-)

I'm a reporter and anchor at WESH 2 News in Orlando, Fla.
Introduction

Amanda Ober joined WESH 2 News in August 1997.

She moved to central Florida from her home state of New Hampshire, where she was the morning and noon anchor at WMUR-TV in Manchester.

Amanda comes from a large family and was born the youngest of eight children in Salem, Massachusetts. She attended middle and high school  in Bedford, N.H. She earned a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism from Troy State University in Troy, Ala.

She has received several professional awards, including the Associated Press Best Spot News award for tracking down two of New Hampshire's top 10 deadbeat dads. Amanda is also an accomplished political reporter; she was part of the WMUR-TV team that covered New Hampshire's presidential primaries in 1992 and 1996.  Amanda was also part of the team that won a Columbia Dupont award for coverage of the Space Shuttle Columbia tragedy, as well as an Edward R. Murrow regional award for her reporting on the Casey Anthony trial.

Her most memorable experiences at WESH 2 News include covering the wildfires of 1998, spending a month on the road in West Palm Beach and Tallahassee covering the 2000 post-election battles, and being right on the coast as hurricanes Jeanne and Frances hit in 2004. She will also never forget the challenging days she spent field anchoring WESH 2 News’ live coverage of the Casey Anthony trial from outside the Orange County courthouse.

Amanda volunteers on the boards of  several non-profit groups including Samaritan Village and J-4 Leaders. She also enjoys serving at her church, Summit, where she helps lead the guest services team as well as small group bible studies. She enjoys Christian music, running and mountain hiking, and is a proud graduate of Lifework Leadership Orlando.

Her talents extend to singing, and she has performed professionally in college and in the Miss America pageant system. She was New Hampshire's Junior Miss and first runner-up to Miss New Hampshire.
