Amy Yensi joined the WJZ news team in March 2015 as a general assignment reporter.
Amy comes to Baltimore from New York City, where she was born, raised and reported for nearly four years. As a “one-man band” reporter for News 12 The Bronx and Brooklyn, she shot, wrote and edited her own stories. During her time in New York, Amy helped cover the assassinations of two NYPD officers, Hurricanes Irene and Sandy, as well as the Bronx River Parkway crash that killed seven family members.
Before working on-camera, Amy spent time as an assignment editor and field producer.
Amy earned her Master’s Degree from the CUNY Graduate school of Journalism and her Bachelor’s Degree in English from Hunter College.
She is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
