Alex Holley joined the FOX 29 News team in the summer of 2014 as co-host of “Good Day Philadelphia.” Alex is an award-winning journalist who came to FOX 29 from WMBF-TV in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where she served as a reporter and fill-in anchor for the station’s morning news programs. She covered a wide range of live stories, from hurricanes and tropical storms to the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary Debates.
Prior to that, she worked as an anchor, reporter, and producer at KOMU-TV in Columbia, Missouri. Alex also served as anchor for the innovative multi-source news website, Newsy.com. You can see her in the digital journalism display in the Newseum in Washington, D.C.
Alex is very proud to be a University of Missouri (MIZZOU) Tiger, where she graduated from the first, and one of the best, journalism schools in the nation. She carried a double minor in Sociology and Spanish. While at the University, she was voted Mizzou’s Homecoming Queen. She also created a recognized community service program for students called "SWIPES Make a Difference." The program continues to help college students donate unused meal plans to those in need in local communities.
Alex still uses that service spirit as she volunteers with her sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. She is also a member of the National Association of Black Journalists.
One of Alex's favorite hobbies is travel. She has explored more than eleven different countries, and is proficient in Spanish, having studied at the Universidad de Salamanca at age 13. Alex believes this global exposure helps add a versatile dimension to her work, as she uses her knowledge of different places to enhance the perspectives of her stories.
