Alex Wilcox joined NewsCenter 16 in May 2016 as a multimedia journalist after working as an associate producer here at WNDU during his senior year of college.

Alex graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2016 with a degree in Film, Television, and Theatre and a minor in Journalism, Ethics, and Democracy.

While in college, Alex worked as a student coaching assistant for the Notre Dame Football team, where he helped coach the DBs and prepare the offensive scout team to go up against the defense in practice. If he looks familiar, you may have seen him pacing the Irish sidelines on fall Saturdays, signaling in the defensive calls while trying not to get in the way of Brian Kelly.

Alex also worked for two years as a QB and LB student manager for the Irish, which has led him to feel oddly uncomfortable when in the stands at any sporting event. Before he devoted his college years to being a glorified ball boy, Alex worked for the campus newspaper and TV station.

His passion for sports rivaled only by his desire to report on it, Alex loves talking about stories off the field as much as he does the X’s and O’s on it. While waiting for Bob Costas to retire, Alex enjoys working for the best station in the area covering all that Michiana has to offer.

A proud New Yorker, Alex devotedly cheers on his beloved Giants. In his free time, Alex enjoys staying active, spending time with friends, and exploring his new community.
