Andrea Cambron began her radio career in Decatur, Il. in 1997 when a friend suggested she host a college radio show for fun. It was one of the best pieces of professional advice she has taken and hasn’t looked back since.
After transferring and graduating from Howard University in 2001 with a BS in Radio/TV/Film, Andrea worked at various stations in the Washington, DC area including WHUR, WERA, Radio One and (Sirius) XM Radio as an on-air host, reporter and producer.
As a producer, Andrea covered everything from Occupy Wall Street to the White House. But it was her work hosting a segment on women’s issues on Sirius XM that fueled her passion to dissect federal policy as it relates to equality, civil rights and our national health system.
Now that she’s back to her roots as a reporter covering traffic in the DC market, she is excited to work with some of the same colleagues she started her career with almost 15 years ago.
In her spare time, if she’s not at a local park in DC with her children, you can probably find her at one of the many museums DC has to offer. Because they’re free.
Andrea is married to Chinelo Cambron and they have two children, Sasshem and Aqmeri.
