On August 24, 1992, Hurricane Andrew slammed into Miami-Dade County changing the landscape of South Florida forever.

Remembering Andrew stitches together found sound, archival news footage, and more than thirty hours of interviews into a single hour of radio. Months of reporting, combined with aggressive use of social media, allowed WLRN-Miami Herald News to uncover new stories, commemorating the disaster for those who experienced it and recounting it for those who didn't.

Remembering Andrew won the Best Documentary: Bronze Award in the 2013 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition. It was produced by Kenny Malone, Alicia Zuckerman, Dan Grech, Sammy Mack and Trina Sargalski for WLRN Miami Herald News.
