Andréa Braswell joined KMTV 3 New Now in September 2016.
She is originally from Prince Georges County Maryland, but has lived in several states working in the news business.
Andréa graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City with a Bachelors of Science in Advertising Marketing and Communications.
So some may ask how you go from fashion to news? Well after interning at several magazines like Seventeen and Teen Vogue she realized the only fashion she wanted in her life were the clothes she wore every day.
After graduating from college, she landed her first job in news working as a Production Assistant at the ABC News affiliate in Washington DC.
Andréa never looked back from there.
She went on to work behind the scenes for stations in Miami, FL, and Savannah, GA. She then started her reporting career at KHGI-TV in Central Nebraska.
Andréa is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists. In her free time she likes to work out and eat healthy (minus her chip addiction).
