Andy Hurst

Producer, The Record

Andy Hurst has worked in public radio for nearly a decade. He's a producer for KUOW's midday newsmagazine, The Record. He's also worked as a producer for both Weekday and The Conversation.

His voice could be heard just about everywhere on the KUOW schedule: middays, morning and afternoon drive, evenings, overnights and weekends. Andy joined the station in 2006 as an announcer for KUOW2. 

He started his career at Northwest Public Radio in Pullman, Wash., where he was the local host for Weekend Edition and backup host for Morning Edition and All Things Considered.

In his spare time, Andy likes digging through record crates, going to shows, and watching documentaries. He's also a long suffering Seattle sports fan. Please send help.
