Born in Edmonton, Andrew was raised in Calgary where he “peaked” in high school as class president at Lord Beaverbrook. Not having a clue what to do with his life, he decided to give broadcasting a try.
Upon graduating from the broadcasting program at Mount Royal College, he took a job with The Movie Show as a production assistant where he had the opportunity to interview some of Hollywood’s hottest stars including Eddie Murphy, Sandra Bullock and Jeff Goldblum.
At this point, live TV called with the chance to be a weather anchor and talk show host at RDTV in Red Deer. This led to the position of weekend weather anchor at Global Edmonton. In 2001, the opportunity to move back to Calgary presented itself, joining Global Calgary as Saturday Morning Show Host and Weekend Weather Anchor. At the same time, Andrew worked at CBC 1010 as a producer and back-fill host.
In 2005 he made the move to Citytv, where he worked as weather anchor/co-host on Breakfast Television, and earned his BSc in Meteorology from Mississippi State University in 2009.
Having been told his entire career he has a “face for radio,” Andrew is happy to now call 770 CHQR his new home.
Family keeps Andrew hopping, with four kids — three girls and one boy, ages teen to toddler.
He is known as a true foodie and is a huge fan of BBQ — three barbecues clutter the backyard. Andrew’s wife, Amanda, can often be heard saying, “Does it have to be smoked?”
A lifelong Stamps fan, Andrew has been the game-day meteorologist for the team since the Wally Buono era. He is also passionate about the NBA and a Clippers fan, before Kawhi.
