Andy Lee was born in El Paso, but he took the road less traveled to a career in broadcasting.

After graduating from Coronado High School in 2002, Andy headed west to Los Angeles. He attended Cal State Northridge, where he was a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity and a media management major. After two years in ‘la-la land,’ the Lone Star State beckoned!

Andy transferred to Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas and was a member of the golf team. In fact, Andy still holds the school record for most eagles in a season. After graduating with a degree in Business in 2007, Andy still did not know what the future would hold. A chance phone call changed the course of his life forever.

Andy’s mother, Marina, called Steve Kaplowitz at KROD radio to try and sell him on her passionate but green son. Steve took a chance on Andy, and he was hired to be Steve’s producer and co-host on "Sportstalk" in May 2008. In July 2012, Andy was given his own two hour sports radio program called "Sports Spin" that aired before ‘Sportstalk’

While at KROD, Andy picked up a part time job at KVIA as a photographer in June 2012.

The following year, KVIA offered Andy an opportunity he couldn’t refuse.

Since June 2013, Andy has been the weekend morning forecaster and weekend sports anchor at KVIA.

Andy has always been fascinated by television and broadcasting, and is looking forward to his role at KVIA.

In his free time you can find Andy watching sports, playing sports, making friendly "wagers" on sports, or locating obscure “Late Night With David Letterman” clips from the 1980s on YouTube.

Feel free to drop Andy a line on Twitter @andyhlee84, or email him at andy.lee@kvia.com. He’ll get back to you in a reasonable amount of time.
