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.
KOKOMO, Ind—You could call him Kokomo’s own ink master. “Some tattooing is amazing and some of it is absolutely terrible” said Bohemian Tattoo Club Owner Timothy Boor. But terrible wasn’t something the Hoosier native had any interest in. “I became obsessive I had to be as good as I could.” Boor’s journey began in Kokomo. His love of art started at a young age, gaining inspiration from painting greats like Bob Ross. By his 20’s, his canvas had changed a […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — It’s a nursery new parents could only imagine with stuffed animals and a family photo. But now that room is a memorial for Corinne Shields. “It’s not something we ever anticipated,” said Alysen Shields, Corinne’s mother. “It doesn’t make sense when it’s a baby, but it’s reality.” Corinne was born in October 2017. Her parents say it was a normal birth, but they started to have questions shortly afterwards. “We started to notice her wrists were kinda floppy, almost as if she didn’t have […]
BOONE COUNTY, Ind—It’s been nearly one year since Boone County Deputy Jacob Pickett was fatally shot in the line of duty. This weekend, the community is invited to come together to honor the father, husband, and K9 deputy, one year later. For the Pickett family, its been a year of many changes. Some of them big, others small. “Holidays and important days are hard. Then it’s the little things like having to shovel the driveway,” explained friend Michelle Atkinson. A […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Breastfeeding wasn’t as simple as new mom Jill Enustun had hoped. Before she gave birth to her now 5-month-old daughter, she researched ways to make the experience a little easier. “Delaying her bath was a way to help your breastfeeding relationship start as smoothly as I could, so I definitely wanted to do that,” Enustun said. Doctors allowed Enustun to wait nearly two days before her daughter took her first trip to the tub. It’s a trend Dr. […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — We’ve all experienced this — you answer your phone only to have an automated voice on the other end. It’s not your imagination, these robocalls are worse than ever. Last year the attorney general’s office said they received 3,500 complaints about robocalls, and tech experts say these scammers are more sophisticated than in years past. “They’re unsolicited. It’s something you’re not expecting, and a lot of times it’s not an actual human on the other end,” said Rook Security Chief […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — This Valentine’s Day, we wanted to showcase some of the timeless love stories made right here in the Hoosier state. Every couple has their own path to finding that special someone. Some relationships are built over the years, while others come when you least expect it. Morgan Smillie and Anthony Monnot met on Tinder three years ago. “I was working a very hard manufacturing job as an HR business partner and I didn’t have a lot of time,” she explained. […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind—For children, a doctor’s visit or a stay at the hospital, can be a frightening experience. But one doctor at Riley Hospital for Children is looking to ease their fears and make them all disappear. “Coming here for many patients, as you can imagine is very stressful. This is simply one more way to relax them and make them feel a little better,” said Dr. James Croop, a pediatric hematologist and oncologist at Riley Hospital. Chances are if you […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — State lawmakers are inching closer to making it illegal for convicted sex offenders to advertise and work as a babysitter. The bill was drafted after Madison County authorities realized a loophole prevented them from re-arresting 26-year-old Anthony Carmack. Carmack has been on Indiana’s sex offender registry since 2013 after being convicted in a child pornography and exploitation case. Last fall, authorities learned Carmack was advertising babysitting services on Facebook. “If there’s a common sense law, this would be one,” said […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Today marks the 35th day of the partial government shutdown, and Hoosiers are feeling the ripple effect as those in Washington remain gridlocked. Any other year, Duncan Giles says he and his coworkers at the IRS would be getting ready for their busy season. Right now though, he’s one of the hundreds of thousands of federal workers furloughed and not receiving a paycheck. “I’ve got folks that don’t have money for medicine don’t have money for gas […]
