“The picture perfect life is attainable, it’s just the contents of everyone’s picture is different.”
“The Amanda Carroll Show” is a daily syndicated radio now available to Contemporary Christian Radio stations across the country. The show is now aired on more than 80 cities in the United States and Canada.
Program Director, Kurt Wallace, shares this after receiving a note from a listener during Amanda’s first show on WQME: “This is what great content provides stations like us.”
“I was listening on my home from work….Amanda Carroll shared a prayer that would be great for my sister to hear. My sister is a struggling single mom with two kids, one of which has just been through a bone marrow transplant. The prayer was about surrendering ourselves to God’s plans and to free ourselves from the superman cape that we try to wear….”
Amanda’s “Daily Prayer” feature has become a vital part of her connection to her listeners, along with her willingness to be real and share stories of her life raising 3 kids on her own as a single mom. She loves to encourage listeners to embrace bravery, and “love the life they live, even if it doesn’t go exactly the way they plan.”
Listeners can call in anytime with their “Get Their Brave On” story at 844-5-AMANDA sharing what they’ve been able to get through with the help of God.

She has also established a Single Mom’s Ministry of her own in Rocklin, California with the backing of Destiny Christian Church.

As single mom of 3 children, she works hard at loving the life she lives, even if it’s not the way she planned. Amanda began her broadcasting career when her parents gave her a dual deck boom box in 1988. She recorded her own shows, even wrote and voiced her own commercials at age, 11.
After receiving her broadcast journalism degree from Indiana University, she became “official” as the evening news anchor for AM-1230 WJBC in Bloomington, IL where she won 2 awards. UPI Best Reporter, 2nd Place, and AP News Best Spot News.
After relocating to Houston, she found her calling while sitting in traffic one day and finding a Contemporary Christian Radio station on her dial. “I wonder if they need a news person?”, she thought. A couple phone calls later, and Amanda was a news anchor for 89.3 KSBJ-Houston, and eventually became the co-host of the afternoon show. She went on to co-host the morning show at WGTS 91.9 in Washington D.C., and then landed the midday host position on the national network K-LOVE. She is now the host of her own syndicated show.

Her family motto is: “See needs and meet them. Change the way the world sees God, one life at a time.”If you would like to have Amanda speak for your special event or would simply drop a line, please contact her.
