Connect With Alex Elich

Alex's passion for writing, storytelling and people came together like puzzle pieces for one career path as a broadcast journalist. She is from the northwest Chicago suburb of Barrington. While at Barrington High School, she won a student Emmy and attended the Silver Circle Honors awards -- that 's when it all started.

Alex graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a degree in broadcast journalism. During her undergrad, she had a variety of internships. She interned at Comcast SportsNet Chicago and the local CBS affiliate in Champaign.

She also worked as a field reporter for the Big Ten Network, ESPNU and anchored campus digital newscasts, where she developed a skill for working under pressure and learned what it takes to make a great show run smoothly.

She also worked for Illini Productions, where she filmed various athletic events. Alex was also the talent for a variety of national and international videos at Underwriters Laboratories.

In her free time, Alex loves to stay active by running and playing tennis. She loves to try new things and is a bit of an adventure junkie. She is also a huge Chicago sports fan!

Alex believes that every person has a story to tell, and it's her job to find that story is and tell it as part of the WSBT 22 News team. If you have story ideas, Alex would love to hear from you!
