Having worked for several news networks, it can be said that she possesses a rare talent and personality that speaks for her.
Notwithstanding the success she seems to be enjoying currently, Amy has been through several hurdles to get here. Her career and personal life challenges, however, made her stronger.
How It All Started In Ohio For Amy
Amy Kaufeldt was born in Ohio, USA. Although her exact date of birth is a well-kept secret, she is known to celebrate her birthday on the 6th day of April every year.
An inquiry into the personal life of Amy Kaufeldt and you would find zero information as regards her parents or siblings, mostly because she chooses to keep that part of her personal life private and away from the media. The only bit of information she is willing to divulge is the fact that she was born into a middle-class family and as a result, she had to struggle to become what she is today.
As regards her nationality, she is American and belongs to the white ethnic group. There is literally no information regarding her early educational background, owing to the fact that she rarely talks about it on record.
Nevertheless, it is known that right after completion of her high school education, she attended Miami University where she majored in Mass Communication/Media Studies. After four years of meticulous studies at the University, she eventually graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in the aforementioned fields.
The Starting Point Of An Illustrious Career
Having received her bachelor’s degree, Amy Kaufeldt ventured into broadcasting but started on the assignment desk at NBC in Dayton, Ohio. Shortly, her skills earned her first anchoring position in 1995 after being hired by KFBB TV.
At the ABC/Fox-affiliated television station, she was assigned the duties of a news anchor and she worked in that capacity until 1997 when she moved to Johnson City, East Tennessee, where she served as the lead news anchor in WJHL-TV. After several years at WJHL-TV, she relinquished her position and moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to take up a job as a News Anchor at the CBS station, KJRH. There, she spent three years before moving to WOFL-TV FOX 35.

For all her achievements as an anchor, she was voted best local anchor team by Orlando magazine in 2017 alongside her astute co-anchor Bob Frier.
How Much Is Amy Kaufeldt Worth?

The annual salary of an anchor at WOFL-FOX35 as of 2019 is estimated to be around $85,000. If that amount is anything to go by, her net worth should be in thousands, but mind you, it’s just speculation.

Celebrating 17 years with this guy today! We got married in Oklahoma and moved to Florida 3 months later. We had 3 babies, made two moves and have had many ups and downs along the way. Marriage is a journey filled with side trips. Some are good. Some are bad. Remember why you’re together and never give up. Grow together, not apart. ❤️ #marriagestory #anniversary #17years
Amazingly, an aspect of her life which Amy is so fond of talking about upon any chance she gets is that of her marital life with Brian Brown.
Although there is no information as regards his date of birth or profession, we can be content with the fact that they tied the knot on the 30th of June 2003 in a private wedding ceremony which was attended by family, close friends, and colleagues.
Ever since they got married, the two have not been involved in rumours of divorce or separation which goes a long way in proving how genuine their love is.
Juggling Motherhood and Career
Amy’s union with Brian is blessed with three beautiful kids – Kate Brown, Caroline, and Colton Brown. The famous news anchor is also the proud owner of a dog named Bogey Brown which she considers an important member of her family. This makes her a busy mom but thankfully, she seeks help. According to the notable journalist, her family is blessed to have a trusted hand that their children love and cherish and she comes to the house to help out when Amy and Brian are at work.
Despite the fact that she and her husband have a very tight schedule, the two make deliberate efforts to raise their children to have healthy habits and lifestyles. They are very particular about what the kids consume, making sure that they are fed with mostly healthy organic produce, especially when it comes to fruits and vegetables. This is in an attempt to limit the possibility of consuming pesticides and other toxic chemicals that some products are exposed to.
