I never used to be a "morning person" -- but here I am, having a blast working on the morning and noon shows at WTWO!
Hi. I'm Alyssa Andrews, and I get to be a part of one of the best weather teams serving Indiana and Illinois.
I've been at Channel 2 since January 2016... a few short days after graduating from Indiana University Bloomington. My degree is in Telecommunications with specializations in both Production & Design, and Industry & Management. I also majored in Social Media Journalism, an area of study that I created through the Individualized Major Program at IU. GO HOOSIERS!
My passion in broadcasting started with sideline reporting for IU's Big Ten student crew. I covered nearly every Indiana Hoosier sports team. From IU Men's basketball, to women's water polo (even quidditch) -- whichever the team, I was excited to report!
My time at WTWO has since redirected my career interests and passion completely into weather! Starting as a reporter, the first time I filled in for the weather department I knew this was what I was meant to do.
Continuing education is very important to me. I love learning about all kinds of topics! Now I'm back in school working for a masters degree, studying meteorology at Mississippi State University.
The morning show is a great time. For us working, and hopefully for you watching at home. When we aren't broadcasting, my time is spent figuring out fun and fresh ways to present daily weather information. Then going home to study for night classes!
So grab a coffee and hang out with me weekday mornings starting 5:30am - noon!
