Andy Wallace is a night side photographer for 10TV.
The Dayton, Ohio, native said he loves meeting new people in the community and telling their stories every day. "Great story telling and creative photography is what drives me to work my hardest with everything we cover," Wallace said. "I really enjoy bringing central Ohio the most up-to-date and correct information."
Wallace began his career with WHIO-TV in Dayton, Ohio, while he finished his junior and senior year at the University of Dayton. For seven months he worked as a sports intern covering everything from high school football, to Dayton Dragons single A baseball, to professional hockey. When his internship ended, he was hired on as a night side photographer for the CBS affiliate.
Wallace joined the Dispatch family in 2008 as a photographer for the Ohio News Network. He spent four years with ONN, traveling nearly the entire state of Ohio covering everything from high school football to presidential visits. In 2011, he was named Chief Photographer for the statewide news operation. He moved to 10TV as a night side photographer in 2012.
"I've been very lucky in the stories I've been assigned to," Wallace said. "Covering both political conventions in 2012 and the Presidential Inauguration in 2013 were highlights of my career. We had a great team of reporters, photographers, and producers and it made the trips and our coverage of the events outstanding. Aside from the job at hand, it was thrilling to be witnessing history in the making."
