Amy Speropoulos is our Master of Ceremonies for the Hearts for Hope Gala.
Amy Speropoulos has been in the Memphis Television Market for 17 years. She graduated from the University of Alabama with a Degree in Journalism and after working her way through the state of Alabama with a variety of Networks, she got hired with the CBS Affiliate in Southeast Missouri. Several years later Amy took in Memphis and moved to the station on the River, WREG in 1999. What was intended to be a step in her career turned out to be a stop, when she met her husband and became Amy Speropoulos. Fast forward to another TV Station, this time on Union Avenue, and 3 little girls, Amy Speropoulos did early mornings for 6 years with WMC. In November she left the 3 A-M shift for Local 24, where she has her own show, Local Memphis Live and as a full time mommy of 3, wife and Christian woman she now spends an hour a day telling the community about the place she proudly calls HOME. You can see Amy, weekdays at 9 a-m on Local 24.
