Drew Galloway is WHNT’s 10 p.m. newscast producer. He is a lover of nerd-culture and literature.

Drew joined WHNT in February 2013 as an Interactive Content Producer after writing for The Madison Weekly. Now, he works every day on building a newscast that has everything a Tennessee Valley resident need to stay informed, while adding a little of his own flair to the show.

Drew’s love for literature began at an early age when he picked up his first book, The Hobbit. His love for writing grew at UAH, where he studied English and Philosophy.

Drew and a few others at WHNT love to attend the premiere showings on midnight of the first day a film is released.

Drew loves science-fiction and fantasy, including Star Wars, The Lord of The Rings, and The Marvel Universe films. Ask him about any Marvel character and he’ll surprise you with his wealth of knowledge. He’s looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 later this year!

He is also one of the cool people at WHNT who dress up for Halloween.

Drew and his beautiful wife, Alexis, are a little afraid of commitment and still haven’t gotten their Pug puppy, but he’s trying to convince her to pull the trigger!
