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 AGreen@FOX59.com.
DANVILLE, Ind. — Chances are, if you walk the hallways of Danville North Elementary School, you will notice the intricate detail and design of their bulletin boards.

It was also the year Hayes and Howard Gearlds became Colts season ticket holders. “When they built the Hoosier Dome, I entered the lottery, got my […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Veteran Harry Mann says it’s hard to remember what life was like before his service dog Raymundo. “He’s my best friend. He’s always with me,” he explained. His wounds from deployment were never visible on the outside, but they kept him from living the life he deserved. Mann, like so many other veterans, struggled with PTSD and anxiety, and it affected everyday activities. “I would go to work, come home, go to work, come home, that’s it,” […]

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. — All throughout October you may have noticed some men around the Circle City sporting a little more pink. It’s for the American Cancer Society’s “Real Men Wear Pink” campaign. For some participants, it’s about bringing awareness to the disease. For others like Noblesville resident Patrick Bennett, it’s much more personal. Bennett’s first run-in with cancer was when he was just 7-years-old when his mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Bennett’s mother won that fight and survived. But the disease found […]
SHERIDAN, Ind. — It may look like just another storefront on Main Street in Sheridan, but step inside the Crossroads Student Center and chances are you’ll find at least a dozen kids and Pastor Chris Brooks. “We parked the car, and we watched people walk around, and we realized it really is a problem.” Brooks says he used to see kids out on the streets in this neighborhood with little to no supervision.
