Amity Addrisi came to KING from California where she built her career working in Los Angeles, Sacramento and Bakersfield.
As an Emmy Award winning journalist with over a decade of experience she's uncovered injustice through her investigative reporting, gotten up close and personal with many California wildfires and covered stories that captivated the nation, including the Jaycee Lee Dugard case.
Unlike many of her peers Amity did not study communications or broadcasting in college; instead she fell in love with journalism during an internship at KNBC, Los Angeles.
Amity received her B.S. in English Literature at the University of California, at Los Angeles where she also studied Geology.
Her passion for Earth Science was a driving factor for settling in the Pacific Northwest.
She finds the complexities of the regional geology both fascinating and important in regards to education and preparation.
When she's not at work she has her hands full with her busy toddler and husband.
Amity and her family have chosen the Pacific Northwest as a place to grow roots and have already fallen in love with the people and surrounding beauty.
Amity is proud to be a member of the KING 5 news team as well as an active member of our community.
