Amber Lee

Amber Lee joined CBS2 and KCAL9 as a general assignment reporter and meteorologist in September 2012.

A Southern California native, Lee returned home after working for KOAT-TV in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as a reporter and fill-in meteorologist for three years.

In 2011, she was recognized by the New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau as “Reporter of the Year” for her coverage on one of the worst droughts in state history. Her reporting called attention to the hundreds of ranchers who bought insurance through the government and were then denied claims.

Prior to Albuquerque, Lee worked in San Luis Obispo at KSBY-TV and began her career at KCBY-TV in Coos Bay, Oregon.

Lee earned her master’s degree in journalism from Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut, and a bachelor’s degree in communication studies at
California State University in Northridge, California.

She earned her certificate in meteorology through Mississippi State University’s Broadcast Meteorology Program.

In her spare time, Lee enjoys traveling and exploring the outdoors. She speaks Mandarin and makes delicious potstickers.
