Andrews left WFOR in 2007 for Bogota, Colombia to start an English language newscast on RCN, the largest TV network in that country.
In an interview with Colombia Reports, Andrews talked of his time in Colombia, “I did everything I could to help show the world the positive side of what’s happening in Colombia. In the end, it was clear it just wasn’t smart for a gringo to be running all over the south of country, telling the world to come visit, when the FARC wanted to kidnap me. And it’s not like I was targeted because I made someone angry. I was told they wanted me because I was a rather “easy” target. After all, I was the smiling American on TV every day traveling all over the country.”
