Alex Valverde joined the LEX 18 news team in May 2019 as a multimedia journalist.
Previously she worked as a reporter for Spectrum News, Central/Northern NY and for WWNY-TV, both in Upstate New York.
She’s excited to make the move to Central Kentucky and trade in harsh winters for milder ones. As a native Buckeye, she’s also much closer to home.
Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, she knew she wanted to be a journalist when she was in elementary school. She graduated from Kent State University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. While at Kent State, she worked for the award-winning student-run news station TV2 KSU as a reporter and anchor.
While attending Kent State, she also interned at the CBS affiliate in Columbus, Ohio, WBNS-10TV.
When not reporting, you can still catch Alex out and about, whether it's hiking, shopping, or making a coffee run.
