In May of 2007, Andrea Kremer, one of the most accomplished sports journalists on television, joined HBO?s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. Kremer, who the Los Angeles Times has called ?the best TV interviewer in the business of covering the NFL,? has contributed a host of compelling profiles and features since joining the Emmy Award-winning program.
Among the most memorable interviews she has done at HBO are compelling one-on-ones with Urban Meyer, Jim Harbaugh, Pete Carroll, Lane Kiffin, Barret Robbins, Rex Ryan, DeMaurice Smith, Bill Parcells, Phil Jackson, Joakim Noah, Bruce Arians and Robert Kraft. In March of 2011 she was the correspondent for the college football special report on Real Sports that made national headlines with its in-depth reporting. And in the summer of 2011 landed a revealing and poignant interview with the NFL?s Harbaugh brothers ? Jim and John.
For the season premiere of the program in 2012, Kremer reported on the largely unknown use of Toradol in NFL locker-rooms. In 2014, Kremer provided a detailed report exploring the considerable use of marijuana by NFL players and why the drug is preferred for pain management by so many when compared to opiate-based painkillers that can become addictive.
Her November 2016 expose on yoga guru Bikram Choudry shined a light on allegations of sexual assault and misconduct. The report made international headlines.
Andrea Kremer joined the NFL Network in October 2012 to serve as the chief correspondent for a newly-created unit dedicated to player health and safety. In the spring of 2013 she began teaching ?The Art of the Interview? in the School of Journalism at Boston University?s College of Communication.
For five seasons she was the sideline and feature reporter for the Emmy Award-winning NBC Sunday Night Football.
TV Guide said Kremer is "among TV's best sports correspondents of either sex," and her work is "distinguished by her eagerness to calmly ask tough questions and her refusal to pursue the same old story."
Before joining NBC, The Emmy Award-winning Kremer was ESPN's Los Angeles-based correspondent.
Prior to joining ESPN, Kremer worked at NFL Films (1984-89), where she was a producer/director and on-air reporter for the nationally syndicated show This is the NFL. Kremer received an Emmy nomination in 1986 for writing and editing the critically acclaimed NFL Films special Autumn Ritual. She also produced several one-hour specials including the All-Pro Dream Team, All the Best, and Gift of Grab. Her first assignment at NFL Films was working on the HBO program, Inside the NFL.
Before joining NFL Films, Kremer was sports editor of the Main Line Chronicle in Ardmore, Pa., the state's largest weekly newspaper, from 1982-84.
A Philadelphia native, Kremer graduated cum laude with a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1980.
