Fort Worth-based NBC5 is adding Dallas-raised Amanda Guerra as a reporter. She'll be arriving from Oklahoma City's KOCO-TV after nearly three-and-a-half years at that station as a general assignments reporter.
Guerra, a former student at Dallas' Ursuline Academy and graduate of the University of Oklahoma, also has interned for CBS' longstanding Sunday Morning program. She arrived at ABC affiliate KOCO after anchoring, reporting and producing for the student newscast OU Nightly.
According to her Twitter page, Guerra was in Dallas Sunday afternoon to watch the Dallas Mavericks sweep the Los Angeles Lakers at American Airlines Center. On her Facebook page, she exuberantly announced her new job at NBC5 and added, "So Central Market, Cafe Brazil and Texas Rangers . . . Watch out! 'Cause I'm coming back!"
She's scheduled to start at NBC5 on June 13th.
Here's video of Guerra doing an OU Nightly news brief in November 2006.
