Andy Kravetz joined CIProud.com in April 2023 after spending more than 25 years covering local news. He’s covered everything from a butterfly house to the ongoing war on terror to countless court cases.
A native of St. Louis, Mo., Andy graduated from Vanderbilt and received his masters degree from the oldest (and most say the greatest) journalism school in the world, the University of Missouri. Before coming to Peoria, he worked as a congressional reporter for a Nashville, Tenn., newspaper and also for one in New Mexico. He’s worked in molecular genetics research labs that focused on HIV and on figuring out protein structures. He’s even published in a scientific journal as having contributed to the research.
An avid whitewater kayaker and mountain biker, Andy is also involved with Boy Scouts and youth hockey as a coach. He’s married with two children.
