Andrew Ward joined the KWQC sports team in July of 2016.
Before coming to the Quad Cities, he was a sports reporter at KLKN-TV in Lincoln, Nebraska. He was a vital part of the station’s Nebraska sports coverage, including wall-to-wall Husker football reports. Andrew also covered a Nebraska volleyball national championship, minor league baseball, and hockey, along with countless of high school sporting events.

After Andrew graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2014 with a broadcast journalism degree, he joined KLKN as an overnight news reporter. He was quickly promoted and has been a sports anchor and reporter ever since. While he was in school Andrew interned at his hometown station of KCRG in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, along with the Omaha World-Herald and Orlando Sentinel.

Andrew lives, eats and breathes sports, but also enjoys relaxing on his days off by playing cards with his wife. She keeps him humble by beating him at whatever game they are playing.
