We at the Wedding Experience are so lucky and happy to make the announcement that Drew Carney from KGW News Channel 8 will be the host for our mock wedding! His “Out and About” reports can be seen weekday mornings on KGW’s “NewsChannel 8 at Sunrise” between 5-7a.m. He will be guiding guests through the night and asking vendors questions about their business. The best part is Drew got married at the Benson Hotel 6yrs ago and is very happy to be coming back, and can’t wait to show couples how wonderful their wedding can be.
Drew’s pursuit of a career in TV began almost 20 years ago while attending college at Temple University in Philadelphia. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree, he started out as a sports anchor/reporter with stops in small markets like Abilene, Texas, & Johnstown, Pennsylvania. In October of 2000, Drew moved to Portland and two years later made the switch from sports anchor to morning show feature reporter. Since then, he’s learned to call the Pacific Northwest home… marrying a born and raised Oregonian in 2006. He and his wife now share a home in the Portland suburbs with their twin boys. Drew is is very excited to to be coming back to the Benson, and will see you on October 27th 2012!
