Andre Ash

Andre is a product of the Motor City, born and raised in Detroit, Michigan.

He discovered his desire for broadcasting at an early age, as he made the 5:00 news appointment television as a kid.

Have a conversation with any of his elementary school classmates and they’ll tell you, he was destined to one day become a news reporter given the numerous occasions where he would position a brush to his peers’ faces as a microphone for impromptu interviews.

Andre has covered an array of stories, from Presidential candidates, mayoral elections, to violent crime and new development in the city.

One of his proudest accomplishments includes directing and producing a documentary highlighting urban homelessness. The project received an NAACP award. 

Prior media projects have earned him recognition from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters.

Andre joined Michigan Chronicle in March 2021 as Digital Anchor, a historic new role for a black newspaper institution that is expanding its digital footprint for online audiences. 

He enjoys being able to profile people in politics, business, and Black culture and well as elevating issues which impact the Black community.

Previously, Andre worked at Adell Broadcasting as a producer and host for its radio division and general assignment reporter for WADL-TV.

When Andre isn’t interviewing in front of a microphone or camera for work, he enjoys spending time with family, bowling, and traveling.
