Alex George joined the FOX 29 News team in November 2019 as a general assignment reporter.
Prior to joining FOX 29, Alex was a reporter for WTVC News Channel 9 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In September 2018 the Chattanooga Times Free Press named her Best Columnist/Reporter in a “People’s Choice” vote.
Alex hit pause on her career in the spring of 2018, when she was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer called Ewing’s Sarcoma. She battled cancer with the help of her doctors at Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania-Penn Presbyterian hospital in Philadelphia and is now a proud cancer survivor.
A graduate of Moorestown, NJ, High School, Alex was born in Philadelphia and grew up watching FOX 29. In summer 2016, while she was an intern and junior reporter at FOX 29, she helped cover the Democratic National Convention on “Good Day Philadelphia.”
Alex holds a bachelor’s degree from the Gerald Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan.
When she isn’t in the FOX 29 newsroom, Alex enjoys baking for newsroom staff, family, and friends, and sharing the adventures of her dogs on social media.
