America Now with Andy Dean

From politics and business, to entertainment and technology, America Now with Andy Dean discusses the important local, national, and global headlines that impact our lives. The Talk program broadcasts weekdays 6-9PM.

From the people who brought you Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Coast to Coast, America Now with Andy Dean is an up and coming radio show with the self-proclaimed “King of New Content.”

Andy Dean was the President of Donald Trump’s television and media company, Trump Productions LLC, which produces many network and cable television shows including NBC’s worldwide hit show, “The Apprentice,” “The Miss Universe pageant,” and top shows for MTV, The Golf Channel, and Comedy Central.

Andy got his start in the media business as a contestant on NBC’s “The Apprentice.” At the age of 22, Andy was the youngest candidate to compete on “The Apprentice.” Over 16 million people watched as Andy was “fired” at the end of the series. However, one month later, in real life, Donald Trump “re-hired” Andy to work for him personally.  Andy worked directly for Donald Trump for 6 years in New York City and then in Los Angeles.

Andy Dean grew up in South Florida, and in high school, Andy won the U.S. National Debate Championships in Commentary Speaking.  Andy graduated from Harvard University with honors with a degree in Government.

During his time at Harvard, Andy worked for Rick Davis, who was Sen. John McCain’s co-Campaign Manager in the 2000 and 2008 Presidential election campaigns.  Andy has been interviewed on NBC’s “The Today Show,” CNBC’s “Power Lunch,” Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”
