CBS4 Reporter Andrea Flores was born and raised in California, but is happy to call Denver her new home! She grew up a Denver Broncos fan, and is excited to be around other fans who love the Mile High City.
Andrea joined CBS4 in May 2016. She previously reported and anchored at KMTV in Omaha, Nebraska. Before her time in Omaha, she was also a reporter and anchor at KOLN in nearby Lincoln, Nebraska. While in Lincoln, Andrea received the Marsha Bangert Williamson Memorial Award from The National Federation of the Blind for her work on a story that revealed how city construction affected the blind and visually impaired.
Andrea’s first reporting job was in Amarillo, Texas at KVII. She was also a midday anchor and producer while living in the “Lone Star State.”
Andrea got her big break at the Los Angeles duopoly, CBS 2/KCAL 9, as a production assistant. She quickly worked her way up to a fill-in assignment desk editor, then an undercover content producer for the Emmy Award winning investigative reporter David Goldstein. She rounded out her time in Los Angeles as a talent booker and segment producer for interview segments. High-profile celebrities, authors, politicians and educators made appearances on segments she produced. The best career advice she ever got was from Julie Andrews.
Andrea graduated from the University of California, Davis in 2010 with a degree in Communication and Spanish. During college, Andrea was a member of the Alpha Phi sorority.
Andrea loves living in Colorado where she can enjoy the outdoors. In her spare time, Andrea loves running, hiking, cooking, trying new restaurants, and playing with her Goldendoodle, Barley.
