Andrew James joined Alabama News Network as a general assignment reporter in June 2016. Before reporting for Alabama News Network, Andrew worked as an assignment editor at WCCB in his hometown, Charlotte, North Carolina.
Andrew graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a degree in Communication Studies and minors in Journalism and Spanish. During college, he was an active member of the school newspaper and student news broadcast.
Andrew began learning Spanish in kindergarten at a language immersion school in Charlotte. He made his first trip abroad in the eighth grade as part of an exchange program in Spain. He later returned to Spain during college, motivating him to earn a minor in Spanish.
From a very young age, Andrew dreamed of being a television news reporter when he grew up. He first interned at a news station when he was in the eighth grade. That experience set him on the path to making his dream a reality.
Outside of work, Andrew loves the outdoors. Whether it is running trails or hiking through North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, Andrew loves to spend as much of his free time in the mountains as possible. He is also a big fan of the Carolina Panthers, enjoys going to see his favorite bands in concert and loves spending time with his dog Summit.
