Honorary Chair: Amelia Mugavero

Amelia Mugavero joins CBS News Texas team as an anchor and reporter. Amelia was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, and graduated from John Paul II High School. 

Amelia always knew she wanted to be a journalist. She has never met a stranger and loves telling people's stories. Amelia grew up watching CBS News Texas, which led her to take multiple Dallas internships. She was an intern for CBS Radio in 2015 and also an intern for a TV news station in the summer of 2016. During that 2016 summer, Amelia helped cover the tragic stories surrounding the 2016 Dallas Ambush, where 5 Dallas police officers were shot and killed in downtown Dallas. After that summer, Amelia knew she wanted to work in Dallas-Fort Worth and help be a voice for North Texans. 

Amelia attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, graduating with a bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism.

Why Illinois? Amelia is a world champion baton twirler -- first learning to twirl from a studio in Garland, Texas. She was offered the prestigious position of Feature Twirler for the Marching Illini. She twirled for all home games and performed at Chicago Bears games, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and the Saint Patrick's Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland.

She comes to DFW from Saint Louis, Missouri, where she was an anchor and reporter. Amelia covered a variety of national stories in the Show Me State, including a historic deadly tornado that leveled an Amazon factory, as well as historic flooding in the summer of 2022 that made national news.

Amelia also worked in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she was a reporter for Oklahoma CBS affiliate, KOTV News on 6, as well as KTEN News in Denison, Texas as an anchor and reporter. Amelia has produced investigative pieces, such as the spike in road rage in Texas and Oklahoma, high incarceration rates, and wrongful convictions. Amelia also started her reporter series titled "Those Who Serve" to highlight people and veterans who go above and beyond in their communities.  

Amelia competed in the Miss Illinois pageant and was first runner-up to Miss Illinois 2016.

Fun fact — Amelia and her mom were on CBS' Price is Right in March of 2019, where her mom, Angelia, won two trips to Florida and Savannah, Georgia! In her spare time, Amelia loves to explore new restaurants (her favorite food is Italian and tacos), hike, read, and cuddle with her cat, Travis.
