Katherine Amenta Anchor

Katherine Amenta

All the early birds have their coffee with me between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. every Monday through Friday. I moved here from Salisbury, Md., where I was a lead anchor for the ABC affiliate, WMDT. I spent three and a half wonderful years on the Eastern Shore and quickly learned it’s home to so many amazing and charitable communities.

Here at NewsChannel 8, we’re putting the D.C. metropolitan area at your fingertips! It’s been so exciting to dive right into the world of blogging and social media. I’m actually a newbie when it comes to Facebook, so I’m ready to post away!! Be sure to visit our blog for live updates during our shows and events around town. You can always contact me at kamenta@tbd.com and, of course, I look forward to seeing you at 5 a.m.!

If you are interested in booking Katherine for a public appearance, please contact Director of Community Relations Abby Fenton at afenton@wjla.com. Please make sure your email includes the following: 1) Name of the organization, 2) Event Date, 3) Time of the event, 4) Number of people expected to attend, 5) County, 6) Event location, and 7) Role of the NewsChannel 8 personality at the event.
