Andrew Webb

Multimedia Journalist

Charlottesville, Va.

Andrew Webb graduated from Virginia Tech in May 2020 with a degree in Multimedia Journalism and a concentration in sports media and analytics. He joined the NBC29 team three days following his virtual graduation in May 2020.

During his time in Blacksburg, Andrew was a student-athlete playing on the Virginia Tech Baseball team as a catcher. He was once selected as the “Virginia Tech Athlete of the Week.”

Also while at Tech, Andrew completed two internships at WDBJ7 and WFXR Sports in Roanoke.

Andrew was born and raised in Manassas, Virginia but is no stranger to Charlottesville. His family roots run deep in Albemarle County. In fact, the Moss Vestibule in the UVA School of Nursing is named after his great-grandmother, Amelie Preddy Moss, who graduated from the Nursing School in 1937.

Outside of work, Andrew loves to attend country music concerts, attempt to play the guitar, and watch his favorite teams break his heart every season, with the exception of the annual Commonwealth Cup.

Andrew is living proof that Hokies can have a love and appreciation for Charlottesville and central Virginia.
