Alexa Green joined the FOX59/CBS4 team as a morning reporter in June 2017 and is thrilled to be in the Hoosier state covering the stories that matter to you!

Before moving to Indy, Alexa was a reporter for Spectrum News in Binghamton & Syracuse NY, covering stories in some of the snowiest cities in the country.

When she wasn’t outside reporting on the snow (or the cold!) Alexa broke dozens of stories and landed exclusive interviews, including one with prison escapee David Sweat’s mother, speaking with her just hours after her son was captured alive. She also is an AP-award winning reporter for her stories on a fatal fire that killed two young children and the tragic murder of a 21-month year old.

A Jersey girl at heart, Alexa is a proud graduate of Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications ( Go Orange!).

When she isn’t working, you can find Alexa out running, reading and trying out new restaurants around in the area. If you have a story idea, or just want to say hi, she’d love to hear from you at
