Andrew Shores first took to the airwaves on his first day of high school in the fall of 2007 on 730 KLOE-AM in Goodland, Kan. At the ripe age of 14, he helped produce a variety of programs ranging from 8-man high school football broadcasts to reports from area feedlots and grain elevators. It sparked his interest in small town journalism and informing the public.
After spending time working in special education, he moved to Manhattan in August of 2014 and immediately joined the staff at KMAN while majoring in Journalism-Digital Media at Kansas State University. Andrew was asked to begin writing news and hosting the weekend mornings in April of 2015. He appreciates the fast-paced and friendly work environment at the studio. Whether it’s reporting on a breaking news story or listening to the ‘Cats beat their rival in Bramlage, it’s always fulfilling.
Andrew currently serves as the Program Director for The Wildcat 91.9, the non-profit alternative music station owned by K-State. He will graduate in December of 2016, and hopes to move into the workforce as a hard-working, innovative, and passionate digital journalist.
In his spare time, Andrew enjoys blogging about politics, hosting an alternative music podcast, volunteering at a local cat shelter, and watching his Denver Broncos win division titles.
