Stephen Andress joined Catena Media as Managing Editor of TheLines.com in March 2021. He began his career as a sports anchor and reporter, covering Chip Kelly’s Oregon Ducks before moving to Louisville. There he covered the Kentucky Derby, Sugar Bowl and three consecutive Final Fours, including Kentucky’s 2012 and Louisville’s 2013 national championships. Stephen later won an Emmy award while working for the Indianapolis Colts. More recently, he produced content for the PGA TOUR and multiple fantasy football and sports betting websites. Nothing has excited him more in his career than seeing legalized sports betting in the United States and the opportunity to share his knowledge and enthusiasm for it.
His hobbies include kicking his high school friends’ rear ends in fantasy football (a league that has been running since 2005), Japanese whisky and Kentucky bourbon, futures and golf wagers, jogging and supporting RIP Medical Debt, a charity which works to wipe out medical bills for those who have been unable to cover the cost of getting sick.
