Damian Andrew is a two-time Emmy Award-winning Sports Anchor/Reporter for News 12 Connecticut. Andrew joined the News 12 team back in October of 2006 and has been covering local sports for more than 10 years.
Prior to arriving at News 12 Connecticut Andrew spent nearly 5 years as the Sports Director at Capital News 9 in Albany, New York, helping launch their 24-hour news station. During his stint in New York's Capital Region, he was honored twice by the Associated Press for his sports features. He also hosted the weekly Siena College basketball show, “Saints Alive.”
The year before he landed a position at Capital News 9, Andrew worked as a fill-in sports anchor at the CBS affiliate (WRGB-TV) in Albany. He began his television career as a sports anchor/reporter at the ABC affiliate (WENY-TV) in tiny Elmira, New York where he wrote, produced, edited and shot video for his sportscasts in addition to anchoring them.
Andrew is extremely fortunate to have been able to cover major sporting events in his career, including the NCAA men's basketball tournament, Preakness and Belmont Stakes, Rose Bowl and the Major League Baseball playoffs.
