Amanda Roley has an immense passion for journalism. She is always eager to tell the latest news in order to help the public become inform citizens.
Amanda graduated from the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University in the spring of 2014 (Go Gougs!). As a reporter for Murrow News 8, Amanda earned a scholarship from the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA), received a regional award from the Society of Professional Journalists and honored with a College Student Emmy.
She pitched and produced Cable 8’s investigative news show Studio 41 in Fall 2013. She later anchored her own segment (“The Roley Report”) on the live morning show, “Wake Up Wazzu” with updates on local news.
She also worked as a news reporter for Pullman Radio (NewsTalk/KQQQ) writing stories on city council meetings and voicing news updates for Pullman and Moscow. The beat she enjoys covering most is local government. She finds it’s the best way to get involved in the community and always be aware of important issues.
Her role model in journalism is in fact Edward R. Murrow, and will travel to London in the summer for a backpack journalism trip called, “In the Footsteps of Murrow.” Amanda hopes to one day return to her home in Washington state and eventually sit at the anchor’s desk in Seattle.
Amanda enjoys doing fun runs, attending baseball and football games (especially Cougar football!) hiking, and traveling to new places.
