Andy Dehnart

Visiting Assistant Professor of Journalism

Andy Dehnart's writing on television, culture and media has appeared on NPR and in Playboy, The Daily Beast, and other publications. He teaches writing and journalism at Stetson, where he directs the journalism program.

A member of the Television Critics Association, Andy publishes and writes Reality Blurred, which has, since 2000, offered his impassioned analysis and original reporting on television's newest genre. It "revels in the post-ironic pleasures of reality television," as The New York Times said.

He is also a member of the Lab Rats improv comedy ensemble at SAK Comedy Lab in Orlando, Fla.
