Amanda Tatom

TV Host
KXAN-NBC Austin

With a love for writing, a passion for fashion and an unquenchable sense of curiosity, Amanda Tatom continues to seek out her next exciting project. Her 14-year-career in television had her reporting on everything from the Oprah Winfrey cattle trial to rappelling down a 38-story Austin high rise to interviewing celebrities such as Jake Gyllenhaal, Ethan Hawke and Toby Keith. As a mom to three daughters, Amanda’s daily goal is to show them a woman can be whoever she wants no matter her age or the cards she’s been dealt. She chronicles everything from getting back into the dating game to her favorite beauty products and treatments in her blog Adlibbing Life. Amanda continues to take on television, radio, commercial and print projects as well as brand ambassadorships and speaking engagements while still making it to the carpool line on time. Fueled by queso and champagne, in her spare time Amanda loves adding to her shoe collection, and facing life with open arms and an open heart.
