Andrew Haubner joined the KEZI 9 News team as Sports Director in April 2018.
Andrew spent the previous two years as Sports Director at KTWO-TV in Casper, Wyoming, covering everything from pro rodeo to high school football. He also had the unique chance to cover the University of Wyoming football team's rise from the basement of the Mountain West to a conference championship game. While in Wyoming, Andrew brought several special segments to KTWO, including interactive film sessions, weekly live interview segments, and hosted a high school football show each week. It was the first show in Wyoming dedicated to Friday night football across the state. Andrew was also the recipient of the Wyoming Association of Broadcasters award for Best Sports.
Prior to his time in Wyoming, Andrew attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he covered the Buffaloes for three years on television, radio, and in print. He also completed an internship with the NBC Sports Network while in college.
Oregon has always been a type of home for Andrew. His father, a UO graduate, was raised in the Seaside/Cannon Beach area. Andrew grew up just outside of New York City, and remembers seeing Joey Harrington posters in Times Square. He even has a Harrington bobblehead from those days.
Andrew enjoys skiing, hiking, and in the summer, you can find him out on the golf course in a sand trap, going for double bogey on his off days.
