Story
Tagline
Kate Amara is a reporter and anchor at WBAL-TV 11 Baltimore.
Introduction

Kate Amara never aspired to become a broadcast journalist. Instead, she wanted to write for the New Yorker save for one day of shadowing a local reporter in Boston that changed her life forever.

Kate began her news career working for three years as a producer at New England Cable News in Boston before moving on to a reporter position for the NBC affiliate in Vermont. She thought it was the perfect job because she loves to talk and ask lots of questions.

In September 1999, Kate moved to New Hampshire for a position with WBAL-TV's sister-station, WMUR-TV, as a general assignment reporter. She quickly moved up to anchoring full-time.

She joined the WBAL-TV 11 News team in January 2005. She most recently reported weekday mornings from the WBAL-TV 11 News Washington Bureau, before taking a seat at the anchor desk in the 11 Newsroom for the brand-new WBAL-TV 11 News at 10 p.m. on WBAL Plus (Digital Channel 11-2, Comcast Channel 208, Verizon FiOS Channel 460).

Kate grew up in Farmington, Conn., and graduated from the University of New Hampshire. She is an avid runner, having twice run the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C., most recently in 2004.
