Andrew Kramer multitasks at KYW Newsradio as a reporter, web editor and morning drive writer.   He also covers local events for KYW’s online tourism program hearphilly.com.

Andrew began his career at KYW as a part-time desk assistant in October 2007.

A graduate of Upper Dublin High School, he received a degree in journalism from Penn State University. While there he anchored, reported, and produced for the “Centre County Report” (a weekly, student-run news program) and co-hosted a sports radio show on ComRadio, a PSU station.

He has also interned at WJAC-TV in State College, Pa. as a web editor, and spent several summers interning at radio station WBCB in Levittown, Pa. as a news and sports reporter.

Andrew is a huge fan of Philly sports.  The Phillies in particular are his passion.  In his spare time, you can find him at Citizens Bank Park cheering for his team, or relaxing “down the shore,” either on the beach or out boating.
