Air Personality, Program Director & Operations Manager with a passion for coaching talent and leading radio brands to greater success.
Andy has been coaching on-air talent for more than two decades. He’s worked with personalities at every level, from entry level to seasoned veteran.
Meadows understands the how to coach to each individual’s strengths, while helping manage weaknesses. He’s equal parts cheerleader, coach, therapist and teacher, and applies each skill depending on the situation.
Andy believes in creative personalities drawing inspiration from everyone and everything. He says, “Ultimately we don’t broadcast to rooms full of radio folks. We talk to real people in their cars, homes and offices. Making those personal connections is what it’s all about.”
Andy grew up in a small market radio station his family owned in the Texas Hill Country and appeared on his first radio commercial at age five (Thanks, Fern’s Donut Shop). By age 9, he had his own weekend specialty show and by the time he reached High School, he was performing live on KRVL in Kerrville, TX.
Andy became a Program Director at Age 19 and was seven General Manager in a small market while still in college.
For 16 years, Andy was Program Director and Operations Director for LKCM Broadcasting, based in Ft. Worth, Texas, overseeing programming, operations, digital initiatives and engineering for the 13 station group.
His strength is performance. Andy excels in one-on-one coaching. He loves the process of creating great radio through off-air preparation and on-air execution.
In his spare time he is lead singer of a Big Band, crooning everything from Sinatra to Bob Wills with a 10 piece band.
