Amber manages the Digital Department for KOLN/KGIN, KSNB, KNOP/KNPL/KIIT and KNEP.
Amber Smith joined the Nebraska News and Information Network as a producer in May 2007, back when it consisted of just 10/11 News and there were far less call letters to remember!
Amber produced newscasts for a few years before becoming the Assistant Director of News. Amber has helped launch Gray Television stations in Hastings, Grand Island, North Platte and Scottsbluff.
Amber got an early start in news during high school by working as a reporter for her small town newspaper The Pender Times. Amber went on to work as a web producer at KHAS-TV News 5 in Hastings while getting her Bachelor's Degree in Media Production at Hastings College.
Amber loves exploring all the new bars in restaurants in Lincoln and makes several Omaha trips to hang out with her twin sister, Ashley. Otherwise you can usually find her reading or running on some of the fantastic trails in Lincoln.
