Andrew Savage '85 is part of the cast this fall on the CBS reality show Survivor. He was "marooned" for 39 days on Mogo Mogo, one of the Pearle Islands (Perlas Archipelago) off the coast of Panama. CBS announced the new contestants on Thursday, Aug. 28, on The Early Show.
According to the CBS Web site, this is "the seventh installment of the CBS hit show Survivor, this time a swashbuckling adventure in Panama's Pearl Islands ... 16 Americans will be left to outwit, outplay and outlast one another until one remains to take home the $1 million bounty." The show will premiere Thursday, Sept. 18, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).
When he's not surviving on tropical islands, Savage is a partner with Wildman, Harrold, Allen & Dixon, a large law firm in Chicago. His specialty is intellectual property and entertainment law, and he is considered a leading expert on Internet legal issues. His mother, Lucinda Savage, is an assistant cataloger in Hamilton's Burke Library and his father, John Savage, now retired, formerly worked for the College.
