Nexstar Media's WOOD-TV (Grand Rapids) has announced the hiring of Amber Krycka as a main evening anchor. Kyrcka co-anchors with award-winning journalist Brian Sterling weeknights on News 8 at 10 p.m. and 11 p.m.

From Nebraska to Kentucky, to Florida to Illinois, and now Michigan, Krycka has covered hurricanes, tropical storms, snowstorms, tornadoes, wildfires and many national breaking news stories. Before her time in Peoria, Krycka also worked as a reporter and anchor in Jacksonville, Florida.

Krycka started at the station on March 18.
