Andrew Ramos is a 2-time Emmy Award nominated journalist who has spent nearly a decade in front of and behind the camera working in television news production in New York City.
A native of Passaic, New Jersey, Andrew is the youngest of two brothers and one sister.
While attending William Paterson University in 2004, Andrew landed his first on-air gig reporting for a local music video show in New Jersey. He got his foot in the door landing interviews with several then-up and coming artists like T-Pain, Ciara and Pitbull.
Andrew would later land jobs at several local TV stations in New York where he would learn all about the back end of production, working as a writer and producer. Along the way he has made pit stops at NY1, The Montel Williams Show, HBO Sports, WNYW FOX 5 and WPIX-TV.
It was at WPIX-TV where he made his on-air debut, filing feature and entertainment stories for the PIX News At Ten and PIX Morning News. From Lady Gaga to Oprah, Andrew has interviewed the biggest names in the business. While many find reporting on a glitzy red carpet nerve-racking, Andrew jumped at every opportunity to interview television and film’s brightest stars.
In 2009, he was honored with a New York Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Host/Anchor/Reporter.
While talking to celebrities does have its perks, Andrew was most fulfilled when he used the medium of television to help and educate others. Whether it was showing mothers living on a budget how to make creative Halloween costumes at the 99 cents store or shedding light on the lack of resources available for adults with Autism, he believed helping others was his true calling.
In December 2011, Andrew launched The Ramos Project blog where his goal is to educate, entertain and inspire individuals who are trying to make ends meet. His mission is to help others understand and get the most out of what they already have.
“I want people to think outside-the-box and leave their comfort zone” he says. “The world is so much more interesting when you do.”
