Hello everyone. I’m Andy Young, sports reporter and videographer here at NBC Lima. I’m glad to begin my career in such a sports-lovin’ town.
I’m a May 2006 graduate of Bowling Green State University, where I majored in broadcast journalism. While at BGSU, I was the sports director and an anchor during my senior year for the campus television news show, “BG 24 News.” I had the pleasure of covering many great Falcon athletic moments, including the women’s basketball team’s trip to the NCAA tournament at Purdue University.
I also had the opportunity to learn from news professionals as an intern. I spent a semester as a sports intern at the NBC affiliate in Toledo.
I also interned at Cable 8 News in Jamestown, N.Y. The experience at those stations was invaluable in helping me prepare for a career in television news.
I’m a native of Frewsburg, N.Y., which is about 90 minutes south of Buffalo. (Go Bills!) In my spare time, I enjoy playing basketball, golfing, watching sports of any kind, spending time with friends and family, and just having fun with whatever it is I’m doing.
Like I said, Lima is a great sports town, and I’m happy to be a part of NBC Lima and the Lima community.
