‘His inner compass is unshakable, he’s a rule breaker, he’s an icon, and an iconoclast, a Madonna Stan and a Dead Head. He’s an A-lister who parties like a B-lister with the free spirit of a C-lister. He moves through all levels and truly appreciates each and every person he comes in contact with.

Andy looked handsome in a teal suit over a crisp white dress shirt, black tie, and black leather dress shoes for his big day. 

He has worked hard to get to the place he is in as he began his career in the late 1980s working in television as an intern at CBS News where he spent 10 years and eventually served as senior producer for The Early Show. He also served as a producer for 48 Hours and CBS This Morning.

He went on to join pop culture network Trio in 2000 which was bought out by Bravo in 2004 and Andy eventually became vice president of original programming.

In the summer of 2009, he began hosting a weekly late night chat show titled Watch What Happens Live which later expanded to a weeknight series and still is on air to this day.

The proud St. Louis, Missouri native made history with the gig as it made him the first openly gay host of an American late-night talk show. 

As if that already wasn’t enough, in September 2015 Sirius XM launched a new radio channel curated by him, known as Radio Andy.
