In third grade Amber Hall anchored the nightly news from behind a makeshift desk in her parents’ bedroom. Yes, she was the star talent, but also the producer, editor, prop master, grip and cameraperson. And that’s when Amber realized she wanted to be a producer!
After majoring in theater at SUNY New Paltz, Amber landed at public televisions’ In The Life, an LGBT newsmagazine. She was awarded the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association, Excellence in HIV/AIDS Coverage for a segment she produced about HIV laws. Then Amber found her calling in radio.
As the executive producer and co-creator of SiriusXM’s progressive morning staple, The Agenda, Amber took the show on the campaign trail and blazed the dial for progressive politics on satellite radio.
Amber Hall is the planning editor for The Takeaway. She lives in Brooklyn with her wife and two cats.
