Andrea Kissack

Andrea Kissack is senior editor for QUEST radio and narrates the QUEST television program. Kissack was born in Los Angeles and discovered radio news through listening to her college radio station. With a curious mind and a love for telling stories, she set off for Tampa where she landed her first job as a reporter for Florida Public Radio. After three years reporting in an unbearably humid climate and a brief stint as a miscast opera reporter, Kissack returned to L.A. to work for public radio, then for television news and finally as a reporter for CBS radio. Kissack has been at KQED for over eight years, working first as a producer for Forum, and then as the senior producer for The California Report. Most recently she produced Health Dialogues and other projects. She says she feels lucky to cover emerging science and environmental trends in a place where geek is chic.
