About Andrew Freeman

Hi I'm Andrew Freeman, a native Texan doing my best to readjust to the heat after more than five years away from my home state. This summer I returned home to work for CBS Austin, a dream opportunity I'm still pinching myself over. Not only am I closer to family and friends, but I'm still doing what I love: sharing the important stories of those who live here in Central Texas.

In 2021, I accomplished a lifelong dream by publishing my first book, Welcome to Wis' Apothecary. I've always been a storyteller, and long before I set my eyes on journalism, I wanted to be an author. The release of the sequel is just around the corner, and look forward to seeing where the world of Wis' Apothecary takes me. I encourage you to check it out, and your support would mean a lot! 

At CBS Austin, I am a multimedia journalist. I enterprise, write, shoot, and edit my own stories for the Central Texas area, including crime, politics, community events and much more. I also manage my own social media, and write articles for the website.


I spent the previous five years in the gorgeous Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York, where I worked as a multimedia journalist for Spectrum News Rochester. Before that, it was at KXII- News 12 in their Ardmore, Oklahoma bureau for two years. Both jobs I'm very grateful for, and will always remember fondly. 

I’m a graduate of the Mayborn School of Journalism at the University of North Texas, with a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism, and minors in both Political Science and Communications.

When I’m not working on news stories, I enjoy creative writing, practicing martial arts, and cooking. I’ve been vegan for nearly four years, which has really broadened my horizons in the kitchen. I also value spending quality time with my family and close friends, and fostering new relationships away from home.
