Andrea Grymes joined CBS 2 News as a general assignment reporter in July, 2013.
Previously, Grymes was reporting for WNYW-TV in New York since March, 2013. She covered several stories, including the Boston Marathon bombings and post-Superstorm Sandy rebuilding efforts.
Grymes started her reporting career at News 12 Networks in 2006. She spent nearly seven years working for News 12 The Bronx, News 12 Brooklyn and News 12 Long Island. Grymes not only anchored and reported, but she shot and edited almost all of her own pieces.
She covered a range of stories, including Bernie Madoff’s sentencing, the Miracle on the Hudson, Pope Benedict’s trip to New York, the Nixzmary Brown murder trials, and Superstorm Sandy. The newscast she solo-anchored during Hurricane Irene was nominated for a Best Morning Newscast Emmy.
Prior to working at News 12, Grymes was as a production assistant at Fox News Channel, where she also interned during college.
A native of New York, Grymes was born in Queens and has also lived in Texas. She realized her passion for television news at 16 years old while delivering the morning announcements for her high school’s television station.
On 9/11, she and her classmates reported live the terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. That day solidified Andrea’s desire to pursue broadcast journalism as a career.
Grymes graduated magna cum laude from Southern Methodist University in Dallas with a double-major in journalism and political science. When she is not chasing stories or anchoring a newscast, Grymes loves listening to country music, exploring New York City, and spending time with family and friends.
