Drew Anderson joined the FOX 29 News team in September 2021 as a meteorologist and weather anchor. 

Before joining FOX 29, Drew was a science news anchor, reporter and meteorologist at WFMZ in Allentown, PA.  Prior to that, he did the weather at WGAL and FOX43 in Harrisburg, PA, and WBRE in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

Drew teaches at Pennsylvania State University and has taught courses at Drexel University and West Chester University.  His courses focus on topics like weather, the environment, countries around the world, and risk management.  He also created a class about science movies for West Chester and a class about "How Weather Altered History" for Penn State.

An Emmy award-winning meteorologist, Drew has a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist seal from the American Meteorological Society and federal court weather expert accreditation. He received a teaching excellence award from Pennsylvania State University twice, an award from AccuWeather, research grants for environmental and science communication projects, and recognition by NASA for social media excellence. 

Drew’s passion for meteorology grew from his weather appearance on FOX 29 at the age of nine! Drew was pulled from the crowd to help give the weather report during a "Good Day Philadelphia" remote segment at the Jersey shore, then again in his hometown of West Chester, PA.  A few years later, FOX 29 "Good Day Philadelphia" weather anchor Sue Serio did a live weather report at Drew’s middle school.

Fueled by those "Good Day Philadelphia" appearances, Drew majored in meteorology at Pennsylvania State University, where he graduated with laureate honors. 

Drew has visited every state, every Canadian province, and every continent. In Antarctica, he led tourists on science expeditions and studied how penguins react to changes in climate. 

On other trips, Drew spent a few days acting in the background of movies. If you pause some films with Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio/Martin Scorsese, and Adam Sandler at the right spots, you just might see Drew!
