Amber Diaz has been a member of the CBS4 News team since January of 2018. She came on board just a few short weeks prior to the fatal shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida.
She quickly learned the phrase, ‘News never sleeps,’ might very well have been invented in South Florida. Shortly after covering one of the biggest stories to hit the nation and TV screens, she covered the FIU bridge collapse and was part of continuing coverage in the days that followed.
Amber’s unique voice and on-air presence has added flair to the nightly news team at CBS4.
Born and raised in Waterbury, Connecticut, Amber completed her undergraduate degree as a proud husky at The University of Connecticut where she double- majored in English and Journalism.
She continued her education at Syracuse with a Masters in Broadcast and digital journalism. She interned for KABC in Glendale, California and spent time reporting in Washington, D.C.
Her first on-air job was for NEWS12 in the Bronx, New York as a one-man-band reporter. After two years in the boogie-down Bronx, she packed her bags, and moved across the country to Portland Oregon to be a night side reporter for Fox 12 Oregon. She would ultimately find a new home two years later in Miami.
Amber loves to dance, travel and binge-watch Netflix. Her mother is a nurse and her father is a Sergeant in the police department in Hamden, Connecticut.
