The Frazier History Museum has promoted Andy Treinen to vice president.
“We are very excited to announce this well-deserved promotion,” President and CEO Penny Peavler said. “Andy has played a pivotal role in helping us increase our profile and meet our goals. We welcome his passion, creativity, and can-do attitude.”
Treinen was hired by the museum in 2015 as its director of marketing. In addition to overseeing public relations and marketing, he will in his new role directly manage the facility rentals department as well.
Born and raised in Cincinnati, Treinen graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 1990 before going to work for WLWT and WXIX as a sports producer, reporter, and anchor through 2003. He spent three years in Milwaukee hosting Daybreak on NBC’s WTMJ from 2003-06 before moving to Louisville to work for WHAS-TV.
For nine years he co-hosted the WHAS-TV program Good Morning Kentuckiana with Renee Murphy, Rachel Platt and then Kelsey Starks.
Treinen has won seven Ohio Valley Chapter Emmy Awards and an Associated Press Award for stories he wrote, produced and reported. Although he covered national stories like the O.J. Simpson verdict and the 2000 riots in Cincinnati as a reporter and anchor, telling stories about people is his true passion.
He lives in the Highlands with his wife Wendy and his two daughters, Ella and Mia.
