Amanda Keane is a sports anchor for FOX Carolina.
Amanda moved from Springfield, MA to join FOX Carolina in April 2019.
Amanda was born in Boston, MA and graduated from Roger Williams University with a BA in journalism and political science.
“While I was in college I was able to be on live TV weekly when I announced the numbers as the On-Air Talent for the Rhode Island Lottery,” Amanda said. “I got my start in news and sports at WAGM in Presque Isle, Maine where I was a reporter and anchor. From there I was able to move closer to home to Western Mass News in Springfield, MA where I was able to anchor and produce my own Friday night football show! So when the opportunity to come here to Greenville, SC and cover sports full time came up, it was a dream job- I'm still pinching myself that I’m here!”

Most memorable story: I have had the opportunity to tell so many amazing people’s stories over the last four years in TV so it’s hard to pick just one. But the experience of reporting live at Fenway Park during the World Series was the most incredible moment any Boston fan could have!
