I'm a general assignment reporter for KING 5 News.

Seattle became my home more than a decade ago, and I’m so grateful to be sharing your stories! I love meeting new people, and finding ways to make a difference for people in the Northwest.

I was born and raised in Southern California, and earned a degree in broadcast journalism at the University of Southern California. I’m not afraid to root for the Huskies or Cougars, as long as they’re not playing my Trojans!

I consider myself lucky to be a working journalist and proud to have had my work recognized with Emmy, Associated Press and RTNDA Awards or nominations.

I’m a “boy mom” with two crazy little guys at home. My husband and I stay busy chasing them around, watching sports, reading and enjoying the outdoors.

I get many of my best stories from viewers, and I would love to hear feedback and ideas at amoreno@king5.com or on Twitter @amymorenonews.
