Game 7 of the 1991 World Series was a turning point in Andy Lee’s life. For better or worse, it was the moment a seven year old Andy Lee became obsessed with sports. Born and raised in El Paso, Andy is the grandson of former major leaguer and UTEP baseball coach Andy Cohen, so it makes perfect sense that a passion for sports runs in the family. After graduating from Coronado High School in 2002, Andy went out west to Cal State Northridge in Los Angeles for two years before returning to Texas to play golf at Division III Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas. He graduated with a degree in business in May of 2007, with no intention of using it. After toiling around in Austin, Texas for a year, a chance phone call changed Andy’s career prospects. On a hunch, his mother Marina called Steve Kaplowitz to see if there was any opening at KROD for her son who was passionate about sports but lacked any broadcasting experience or training. As the cliché goes, timing is everything, and Andy was offered a position to replace the departing Quinton Martinez in May of 2008. After working with Steve for four years on SportsTalk, Andy was given the opportunity to host his own show in July 2012. Sports Spin with Andy Lee and Crystal Dominguez airs from 2-4 PM on 600 ESPN El Paso. Andy and Crystal will give their 'spin' on the stories, topics, and issues that affect our community. Andy has also hosted Football Friday Nights with former Franklin coach Tony Grijalva since 2009. In his free time you can find Andy watching sports, playing sports, making friendly ‘wagers’ on sports, or locating obscure Late Night With David Letterman clips from the 1980s on YouTube. He may even post some rare Letterman gems from time to time on the website. Andy is also a six time champion of the LPGA's du Maurier Classic. Drop Andy a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. He'll get back to you in a reasonable amount of time.
