Andrew Cluley



Like many, I first came to this area when I started school at the University of Michigan, then fell in love with the community and haven’t left. After graduating from U of M in the mid 1990’s I interned at WDET for several years, while also working a variety of jobs in Ann Arbor. Then in 1999 I joined the WEMU news team.

While working for WEMU I’ve covered the Ann Arbor City Council and School Board beats, Eastern Michigan University, Ypsilanti City Council and School Boards and the Washtenaw County Commissioners. Not to mention pretty much everything else in the area. I really enjoy covering local news, partly because it’s so overlooked by other media outlets. In many ways what happens at city hall or in your community school has a bigger impact on your life than what’s going on in Lansing or Washington D-C. I get the chance to track down these important stories and bring them to you every day.

When I’m not at work I love to follow sports, particularly U of M, and Detroit’s professional teams. Saturdays in the fall you can count on me watching Michigan football…and Sundays I’m probably suffering through another Lions debacle.

I also enjoy running and am proud of finishing the 2006 Detroit Marathon. Would love to run another, but I’m holding off until I think I have a realistic chance to complete one in under four hours.

Thanks for listening to WEMU and finding out a little bit more about me.
