St. Lucia News Online was founded in December 2008 and was first published in late March 2009. However, it ceased publication temporarily to facilitate other company projects.
It resumed operations on Oct. 1, 2012, and has been publishing non-stop since.

Andrews was also the founder of BVI News in 2006. It was the first online-only daily, breaking news website in the British Virgin Islands. He sold the site, which operated under Alliance News Limited, on April 19, 2013.
He also founded Dominica News Online (operated under Andrews Publishing Co. Ltd.), the first online-only daily, breaking news website for the Commonwealth of Dominica, in 2007, and sold it to Duravision Inc. in December 2011.
