Travis Andersen is a breaking news reporter on the Express Desk at the
Boston Globe, covering everything from police and the courts, to higher education,
local and national politics, and celebrity news. He joined the Globe in 2010 and worked
previously on the night desk as a general assignment reporter. Notable assignments have
included the murder trials of Aaron Hernandez, proceedings in the Varsity Blues college cheating
scandal, and the arrests of New England defendants in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the US Capitol.
He previously covered the New Hampshire Legislature for the Associated Press. He is a
proud member of the Boston Newspaper Guild, the LGBTQ community, the recovery community,
and the global fraternity of rabid prize fighting fans. Travis relishes the daily rush of the breaking
news cycle and prides himself on speed, accuracy, fairness, and - when appropriate - a hearty
dose of entertainment value. He lives in Rhode Island and commutes in to the city on
Train 804. He also drinks far too much coffee and will stop to pet every dog that approaches
him on the Common.
