    WPXI must be clueless! You are beautiful, funny and very good at your job! You will be sorely missed in this market! Best of luck to you in all your future endeavors!

    1. So sorry to see her go! She was the best morning anchor on channel 11. I so much enjoyed watching the news in the morning, the others are actresses.

      Will be watching another channel, probably a cable channel!

  4. I will no longer watch Channel 11 News since Catherine Amenta will not be on there. She was the reason we were such big fans of the morning news on WPXI. Big mistake not renewing her contract.

  5. I enjoy when You are on the news. You are a beautiful woman and funny too. Good morning and have a fantastic day.
