Reed Andrews joined KATU in September 2014 and is thankful to call both the city and station home.
Andrews works as a general assignment reporter. He covers breaking news, crime, and also likes to dabble in telling stories of the zany, the odd and the people that make Portland such a wonderful place. Andrews focuses on issues relating to the regulation of legal marijuana in Oregon, and how the industry is doing in Washington.
Reed comes to the Pacific Northwest after more than four years as a reporter in Norfolk, VA. It was a good experience and he learned a lot. He sought to live in a place with Portland's vibrant culture, and was happy to follow Horace Greeley's advice and "Go West, young man."
