She was hired in February 2011 as the web producer for County News, a hyper-local group of sites that branched off from KFVS12.com. Each of the 15 sites covered events and stories in one county in the Heartland.
A little more than two years later, Amber became a digital content producer for KFVS12.com. Since then, she has been a digital content executive producer and now the digital content manager.
