Andrew Ward - News, Weather and Sports for Lincoln, NE; KLKNTV.com

Andrew Ward

Andrew grew up in Robins, Iowa. Some of his fondest memories of growing up are going to the family lake home, visiting his grandparents farm, pick-up football games with his cousins and playing competitive basketball and baseball.

The thought of being on television was intriguing to him, and when he realized that he wasn't going to be a star athlete, a famous musician or entertainer, he figured that broadcast was the next best thing. Andrew graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Before becoming the Morning Reporter for the Channel 8 Eyewitness News, Andrew did internships at KCRG-TV in Cedar Rapids, the Orlando Sentinel and the Omaha World-Herald. Andrew stays up late most weeknights, so he can be ready to report on any overnight news stories. He once interviewed Shaquille O'Neal at the Coke Zero 400 in Daytona. Andrew remembers: I asked him who he thought would win the race. He said "Danika Patrick." When I asked him why, he responded with a shrug and:"she’s hot". Even though he wasn't a News Reporter for very long, the early morning experience prepared him to become a Sports Reporter for the Channel 8 News Sports Department in August of 2014.

In his spare time, he reads “tons” of news outlets, but also enjoys a good novel. Other than that, he loves Netflix and playing pick-up basketball.
