Andrew Waddle joined YSTV as one of 2018's enthusiastic Freshers. Known as a self-appointed Head of Camera as well as having a large degree of expertise on After Effects. Finding ways to build graphics into most productions, Waddle also can be accredited for hiding many a blunder in films.

In 2019, Andrew succeeded Tom Lee as Technical Director.

Because of his technical expertise and enthusiasm to improve YSTV, Andrew quickly became one of the station's most involved members, usually working as VFX artist, Sound OP or camera operator (especially for wireless cameras during YSTV Sport and YUSU Elections). Besides that, Andrew also donated his own equipment to YSTV, including a gimbal and a second C100. This generosity enabled members to work on two productions simultaneosly, which proved incredibly helpful at several points throughout the year.

Andrew also tirelessly helped out Tom Lee fix the studio and its equipment. In YSTV does Hunted, Andrew made an on-screen appearance leading his team of fugitives to victory (by sitting around in a field for most of it).

His most recognizable trademark is his laugh, which often rivals even Matthew Zeffertt's, and his very kind and optimistic-yet-pessimistic personality.

He joined Roses 2019 as Head of Visuals and attended NaSTA 2019. At the YUMAs 2019, Andrew was named the Best Newcomer to student media in York - which he very much deserved.
