Andrea Olson is a reporter at KECI-13 in Missoula. She grew up in Redmond, Washington, near the beautiful, green (and really wet, but wonderful) city of Seattle.

She studied for two years at Bellevue College in Washington, before transferring to BYU-Idaho to study both journalism and video production. She was part of the student media program there, where she was mentored by people in the TV news industry and had leadership positions as a producer and reporter at school.

Andrea interned with KIRO 7 Eyewitness News and Q13 FOX News in Seattle, where she learned from her mentors and gained a love for television.

When Andrea is not working, she loves to go skiing, spend time with family and friends, and try new things that she’s never done before.

Andrea is excited to be a part of the KECI team and thrilled to be living in Missoula.
