An award-winning journalist, KSLAM anchor and KSL 5 News reporter Andrew Wittenberg joined KSL 5 News in January of 2012. Before coming to Utah, Andrew spent six years in Columbus, Georgia as a reporter and anchor in both news and sports at the ABC affiliate.
While in Columbus, Andrew covered a wide range of stories in sports. From a Little League World Series Championship in Pennsylvania to Auburn University’s BCS football championship in Arizona, he’s been all over the country covering major events.
Andrew’s investigation into the murders of seven women in the 1970’s called the “Columbus Stocking Stranglings” led to the first media interview with serial killer Carlton Gary since his conviction for those crimes in 1986.
In addition to awards from the Associated Press and the Georgia Association of Broadcasters for his stories, Andrew received the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer Readers’ Choice Award for best television personality in 2010.
Andrew grew up in Triune, Tennessee. If you’ve never heard of it, you’re missing out. It’s a one stop-light town 30 minutes south of Nashville famous for its gas station and little known sandwich shop called ‘Subway.’ He highly recommends it.
Andrew graduated from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.
When he’s not working, you can find him cheering on his Tennessee Volunteers during football season. Andrew also loves a round of golf, a weekend at the lake and traveling with his wife, Wendy. They have a six year old weimaraner, Peyton, who loves treats, long walks on the beach and meeting people. He’s excited to be in Utah and loves to hit the slopes.
