Amber Worthy is a reporter for FOX Carolina in Greenville, SC.
Amber feels like every day is another day to chase your dream.
She believes there isn’t a goal too high to reach. One of her favorite quotes, one that she lives by daily, was said by Beverly Bond, the creator of Black Girls Rock.
“We cannot be silent on things that matter because we are each a part of the village…We must continue to trail blaze, we must continue to break glass ceilings … we must lift as we climb.”
Amber has a heart for serving her community in every way possible.
Amber prides herself on being an empathic storyteller. Everyone's story should be handled with care. She's only able to do this by the grace of God. It can sometimes feel too big of a burden to carry, bringing her heart into every interview. At the end of the day, Amber realizes that she can lay those burdens down at the feet of God.
Her family is very important to her. Her parents Christine and Eric Norman along with her brothers, Christopher, Noah and Demetrius, and her grandmother are very important to her. They are her biggest cheerleaders. They support her 100% in everything she does.

On the weekends: I love to relax, sleep in, binge watch Law and Order SVU (even though she’s already watched every episode.), or any other crime show with a feel good story line.

Hidden talents: I could sleep for a very long time…… is that a talent?
Hobbies: Reading… Would also love to write a book one day.
Pets: I would love a dog, but my family doesn’t think I could be a single dog mom with this busy schedule.
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.
