Most memorable story: Easter of 2018, Amber went to cover a neighborhood’s Easter Egg hunt in memory of a woman who died because she used to host them because she passed away. It was at East Lake Courts in Chattanooga, TN which is a community that doesn’t get much good press. During the event, the officers who patrol that area were invited to hide the eggs and dance with the neighborhood kids. One officer danced to “Stanky Leg” with the kids and it turned out to be a sweet few minutes that we caught on camera and it went viral. The best part of the video was the officer picking up the smaller kids and hugging the parents because you could tell it meant a lot to them. The story was picked up all over the country, Canada and Europe.
Amber has also covered President Trump and President Obama. Both occasions were amazing. Covering President Trump on the campaign trail in Aiken, South Carolina as well as after taking office in Chattanooga. Amber covered President Obama after President Trump took office.
