About Amanda Dugan – TXST Alumni


This week Mass Comm Week is excited to introduce Amanda Dugan who is a traffic reporter/anchor for KXAN and a Texas State Alumni. We will be covering all the topics from how she got started in her career to any advice she has for graduating seniors.

Amanda graduated from Texas State in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in mass communications. She was selected as “America’s Top Co-Host” as she was a part of the popular morning show “Orange Juice and Biscuits” on KTSW-89.9 F.M. Less than two years of working in radio, she created her own morning program “Rise N Sine”.

In 2011, Amanda worked as the voice, face and personality of the CW Austin. She has also conducted interviews with celebrities such as Will Ferrell, Conan O’Brien, Jodi Foster, Kristen Wiig, Perez Hilton, Molly Shannon and many more.

Amanda is an inspiration to us all who are in the mass communication field and this week I have the opportunity to get some insights on what she did to become successful in her career.
