Before joining the Eyewitness News Team in 2005, Sandy's reports were heard every weekday morning on 1010 WINS Radio. Prior to that he was CNN's Chief Entertainment Correspondent in LA, where he was best known for his "Hollywood Minute." He began his TV career as an Associate Producer at WNET/Thirteen in New York. He is a graduate of Princeton University, where he co-hosted a national radio show, "Focus on Youth."
Sandy has interviewed hundreds of legendary stars in the course of his career, including Eddie Murphy, Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz, Clint Eastwood, Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, Bette Davis, Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, and Lauren Bacall to name only a few.
During a radio program in May 1994, Sandy interviewed novelist Eileen Goudge. The two were married a year later and now make their home in Manhattan.

"Beyond the Lights" is a lot better than its corny title might suggest.This feel-good tale about a beautiful singer will remind older moviegoers of "The Bodyguard," though it lacks the transcendent star power of the late Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.
Several new films hit theaters this weekend, and it's a trip from the sublime to the ridiculous as entertainment reporter Sandy Kenyon reviews one of the worst movies of the year and one of the best.
