He is currently the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of TVC Communications, and is responsible for defining and delivering the business strategy and providing overall leadership for the operation of TVC, TVC News and Max FM (Lagos & Abuja).

Prior to joining TVC Communications, Andrew had worked as Director of News and Information Programming at Ireland’s leading independent national television station, TV3 in Dublin, where he was responsible for the channel’s news and daily studio programming for 18 years. As a founding director of the company in 1998, Andrew established the station’s award winning national news service along with a host of other market leading programmes.

Andrew’s career in news programming began in 1986 with RTE, Ireland’s state owned national television and radio broadcaster, where he worked as a reporter and newscaster for three years before taking the position of Head of News at leading Dublin radio station 98FM, part of the international Communicorp group of radio stations between 1989 and 1997.
