D’Andre Henderson is no stranger to RVA. He was born and raised right here in Richmond, Va., where he graduated from Highland Springs High School in 2014 (go Springers!). He went on to attend Old Dominion University where he received a B.S. in Communications with a double minor in Political Science and Psychology in 2018, and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University where he earned a master’s degree in 2020.
D’Andre’s passion for telling stories comes from his family that allowed him to experience different cultures and taught him about his history. Before joining the team at WRIC 8News, he worked at WAVY-TV 10 in Portsmouth, Va., as an intern, and later as a camera operator. He also interned at CNY Central in Syracuse and participated in the prestigious CBC-UNC Diversity Fellowship at WRAL in Raleigh, N.C.
He loves to report on politics and community-driven topics. His favorite part about reporting is meeting and sharing people’s stories while learning something new every day.
When he’s not covering a story, D’Andre is catching up on his favorite shows, hanging out with his family and friends, and being a girl dad to his dog, Duchess. He is also a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity.
