After a 6 year hiatus to be at home with her son, Carol Andrews is back on local television and this time at WFMY News 2. During her time away from TV, Andrews worked on another passion: writing children's books. She has published two: The Giggle Wind and Speckled Angels. She is currently working on other literary projects.
Carol can be seen on WFMY News 2 on weekend evenings. "It has been great to reconnect with so many viewers that have become my friends over the years".
She is also still sharing her books and workshops around the Southeast. "It is challenging but I am able to do things I love while still being there for my son."
Q&A with Carol Andrews
Name one of your role models?
My mom, her legacy to me is a survivor's spirit. She always told us that it's not what happens it's how you handle it. That is advice that has and continues to serve me well and it's the spirit I hope to pass on to my son.
What are your hobbies?
If I'm inside I like writing, painting and creating jewelry. If I'm outside I like walking and riding my bicycle.
What is your favorite place to visit?
Locally, I love the NC Zoo at Asheboro and Stone Mountain State Park (in NC) My favorite place in the world so far is a two lane road in Panama that is the only strip of land separating the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. It led to one of my dad's favorite fishing spots.
Describe your most embarrassing moment?
I'm in television, my most embarrassing moment depends on the day (Just ask Brian Formica or Leigh Brock)
Where did you grow up?
I am an Army Brat so home is wherever I am. I was born in New Jersey, spent most of my early years in Central America (Panama) went to high school in Atlanta, college at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
