Amrit Singh is a journalist, host, lawyer, storyteller, and documentarian. He is one of the founding anchors of Spectrum News 1 in Los Angeles.
Amrit’s start in TV came thanks so Sean “Diddy” Combs, who tapped him as the founding news anchor, host, and music and culture editor of Puffy’s television network REVOLT TV. While there, Amrit appeared on-air daily for five years delivering news reports, and hosting live variety shows and serving as the network’s Chief Political Correspondent, hosting Town Halls with the likes of Bernie Sanders, reporting from the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, and hosting the bipartisan political roundtable show Voices Of The Future. He's covered breaking news stories live in-studio and filed packages from the field in areas all over the country. He’s also hosted numerous Grammys red carpets and conducted live televised interviews with everyone from William Weld to Rick Rubin, LL Cool J, Grandmaster Flash, Rae Sremmurd, Jennifer Lopez, and on.
Amrit's documentary work has focused on everything from immigrant culture and the evolution of music genres to the criminal justice system, mandatory minimum sentences, and recidivism, including hosting and producing DOSA HUNT, a film festival favorite called "sharply funny" by New York Magazine and profiled repeatedly by NPR, exploring the immigrant community's search for identity through the lens of music and a delicious South Indian crepe.
Before television, Amrit worked as an attorney, practicing corporate securities litigation at white shoe law firms and serving as Editor of Wisconsin's International Law Journal. His journalism career launched with the music and culture website Stereogum, where he served as Executive Editor for eight years, helping build the startup into a news source of international standing.
Amrit graduated magna cum laude from Boston University with concentrations in Political Science and Philosophy and earned his law degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He's passionate about the law in action, meditation and mindfulness, and telling stories that bring humanity to government and society’s most pressing issues. Amrit was born in NYC to Punjabi parents, and now lives in Los Angeles with his wife, puppies, and baby girl.
