Most recently, Andrew was Executive Director/Programming and News Coverage for the audio businesses of ABC News.  In his 22+ years at ABC News Radio, he was responsible for all broadcast and digital audio programming.   

 

These areas included 1650 radio affiliates and ABC News Radio’s slate of almost two dozen podcast titles including the daily news podcast Start Here and the #1 podcast, The Dropout.

 

With more than three decades of experience in the audio industry, Andrew has seen, experienced and adapted to change in a fluid environment.

 

Under his leadership, ABC News Radio was able to advance to the digital audio space without leaving behind the legacy broadcasting experience that delivered ABC News Radio to its market leading position.

 

During his career, Andrew has been able to adjust to the industry’s need for adaptability and agility.  At one point, Andrew and team were faced with the challenge of basically rebuilding the ABC News Radio business from the ground up when they decided to leave their business partner and affiliated radio stations.  The result was that they became an even larger and more viable player in the industry with the ability to pivot to changing times.

 

While at ABC News Radio, Andrew led and directed industry award-winning coverage, including 19 National Edward R. Murrow Awards - honored for Overall Excellence for three consecutive years (2014, 2015 and 2016) and an innovation in journalism Murrow Award for Start Here, ABC News’ daily news podcast (2018).
