Andrew Schneider joined KUHF in January 2011, after more than a decade as a print reporter for The Kiplinger Letter. Based in Washington on 9/11, Andrew covered the work of first responders and the development of homeland security policy. He later became Kiplinger’s associate editor for foreign policy and global economics. In this role, he wrote on the Iraq War, the rise of China as an economic superpower, the global financial meltdown, and the European debt crisis.
Since arriving in Houston, Andrew has been fortunate to cover the best of the region’s economy (the city’s strong rebound from recession and the revolution in energy production), as well as the worst (the trial and conviction of R. Allen Stanford for running the second-biggest Ponzi scheme in U.S. history). He also served a month-long tour as a war correspondent in Afghanistan.
Born in California and raised in New York, Andrew has a family connection to the Texas Gulf Coast. One of his great grandfathers emigrated to the U.S. through the Port of Galveston in August 1913.
Andrew earned degrees in history from the University of Chicago and Duke University. His interests outside journalism include reading, creative writing, acting and classic film.
