“Ama made it a homecoming to the Bay Area when she joined ABC7 News in October 2011 as weekend evening anchor and night-side reporter,” KGO news director Tracey Watkowski said in an email to staffers obtained by TVSpy. “She has done a terrific job as an anchor and reporter covering some big national news stories.”

Daetz replaces Carolyn Johnson, who left the station in April for KNBC in Los Angeles.
