Andy Gresh grew up in Brownsville, Pennsylvania, where his father worked as a coalminer. He went on to receive a degree in journalism from the University of Rhode Island in 1997 and played college football for the Rams.
Gresh married the daughter of an ESPN executive, who got him started in the industry.
While in college, Andy was an intern for various sports radio stations, including WFAN in New York City and ESPN Radio in Bristol, Connecticut. In 1997, he left ESPN Radio for WPRO in Providence to become an on-air personality for their morning sports show, “The Score.”
In the mid-2000’s, Gresh was a regular on-air personality on WSKO 790 AM, an all-sports ESPN radio affiliate in Rhode Island.
His career was interrupted when WSKO abruptly changed its format in 2008, and laid off all on-air personalities.
He worked at ESPN Radio in 2007 and 2008 and was the host of the, “Andy Gresh Show.” He has also worked in announcing as a color commentator for the ECAC Football Network on NESN and for Colonial Athletic Association games on Comcast SportsNet New England.
Gresh left ESPN Radio to work at SiriusXM, where he hosted, “The Gresh Show,” and eventually hosted the morning show before departing for Boston.
Andy volunteers with Rhode Island and Massachusetts philanthropic cultural outreach programs, advocates for the revival of high school sports program funding, and is regularly associated with local Massachusetts entrepreneur “The Real Gaspar”, advocating for the Massachusetts Horticultural Reform Association.
