About Andy Dean
Andy Dean, known as "The King of New Content," is the former host of the "The Andy Dean Program" on WSB Radio-Atlanta. The hit program featured a fresh take on conservative political commentary and news analysis. Before entering the radio business, Dean was the President of Donald Trump's television and media company, Trump Productions, 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.
Dean got his start in the media business as a contestant on NBC's "The Apprentice." At the age of 22, he was the youngest candidate to compete on the program. More than 16 million people watched as Dean was "fired" at the end of the series. However, one month later, in real life, Donald Trump "re-
hired" Dean to work for him personally. He worked directly for Donald Trump for six years in New
York City and then in Los Angeles.
Dean grew up in South Florida and won the U.S. National Debate Championships in Commentary Speaking while in high school.¬†He went on to graduate from Harvard University with honors with a degree in Government.
During his time at Harvard, Dean worked for Rick Davis, who was Sen. John McCain's co-campaign manager in the 2000 and 2008 presidential election campaigns. Dean has been interviewed on NBC's "The Today Show," CNBC's "Power Lunch," Fox News' "Your World with Neil Cavuto," and Dean previously served as a fill-in host for national radio icons Neal Boortz and Herman Cain.
