Amy Kaufeldt


Amy Kaufeldt came to Central Florida in 2003 – one year before the trifecta of Hurricanes Charley, Frances and Jeanne. What a welcome!

She grew up in Delaware, Ohio and graduated from Miami University.

Amy started on the assignment desk at NBC in Dayton, Ohio before taking an anchoring position at the ABC in Great Falls, Montana. She also spent three years as a main anchor at the CBS station in East Tennessee and another three years at KJRH in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Amy's first love is her family and three children she shares with her husband Brian. Her second love is journalism. She has had the privilege of interviewing some pretty interesting people over the years, including football legend Joe Montana, Coach Lou Holtz, Garth Brooks, Julie Andrews, former First Lady Laura Bush and former President Barack Obama. Amy covered the Casey Anthony Trial, George Zimmerman Trial, the Pulse Massacre and numerous other local breaking news stories throughout her career.

Amy is also a big supporter of many local charities and believes strongly in taking part in events that help families who are struggling with a pediatric cancer diagnosis.

A fun fact about Amy: she once hiked the Grand Canyon from top to bottom and back up again in one day on the Kaibab Trail.

You can watch Amy weekday mornings on Good Day Orlando from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.

What are the impacts of energy drinks on children?

The Food and Drug Administration is now taking a closer look at PRIME Energy drinks which touts 200 milligrams of caffeine per can, equivalent to six cans of Coke. The argument from some U.S. senators is that PRIME seems to market its energy drink to kids.
