Fox 5 reporter Kaitlyn Pratt and News AM and 95.5 FM WSB host Tim Andrews got married on Valentine’s Day in Savannah.

Their marriage was even covered by the Savannah press since it was held at the Davenport House Museum, which holds weddings each year on February 14.

Pratt told WJCL she lived in Savannah years ago and always thought it was a special place.

“This is something we never really get access to, even when you live in Savannah,” said Pratt, “so the fact that we have an amazing memory and anniversary to look back on is great.”

“Kaitlyn loves Savannah and that museum courtyard,” Andrews said in an interview this morning. “It’s romantic. I went along with it because I like Savannah too.” Later this year, they plan to go to Puerto Rico for their honeymoon.

They dated two years. They met online joking around on Twitter, Andrews said. One day, he complimented her on a hat and soon, they were corresponding on Facebook. That led to a date and romance. This is Andrews’ first marriage, Pratt’s second.

Pratt joined Fox 5 in 2008. She worked in Macon and Savannah before coming to Atlanta.

Andrews came to Atlanta in 1996 and did promotional work for Z93. He also worked at 96rock and Dave FM off air before becoming part of the Regular Guys while at 96rock. He stayed with the team when the Regular Guys came to Rock 100.5 in 2008 but left after the team disintegrated. For more than a year, he did a podcast and worked with Eric Von Haessler‘s Sunday show waiting for a full-time job. Earlier this year, Von Haessler finally received an 11 a.m. slot on WSB’s weekday lineup, bringing Andrews with him.

B98.5 mid-day host Tripp West is recuperating from brain surgery he had last week.

Tripp West’s wife Jill posted this update on his condition over the weekend.

Tripp West continues to improve. He is feeding himself and oxygen levels are great. Today is the first day that all sedation is off- he is very clear headed. He will be going to physical therapy for about 1 1/2 weeks because he was inactive for so long. There is still confusion but as the meds are removed, they feel that will improve.

Thank you so much for continuing to check in on him. Our family is so appreciative of the love, prayers, and support.
