Where is Andy now? We used to love Toby and Andy in the morning!

I had the pleasure (or adventure) of being interviewed by Toby and Andy in the early 1990s, when I did a comparison of the three local stations' news coverage for The Carthage Press. When it was mentioned on the KOAM newscast a few nights ago that Toby had been hired for the Royals position, it was mentioned that Andy was still in the TV business. If anyone knows what he is doing, leave a comment or drop me a line. I will see what I can find out.
