A native of the Chicago suburbs, Alec is excited to join the WKBT Newsroom after graduating from the University of Iowa with a major in Journalism and a minor in Business Administration in 2018. In his time in Iowa City, Alec was a reporter and technical director for the student-run Daily Iowan TV Station. He was also a reporter for City Channel 4, a local station in Iowa City. In addition to news, Alec was also a play-by-play commentator for The Big Ten Student Network, and student-run station 89.7 KRUI. Alec is excited to start his professional career in La Crosse, and can’t wait to explore everything the city has to offer. When not reporting, Alec enjoys playing jazz guitar and is an avid fan of professional wrestling.

Do you have a hobby or collect anything special to you? I love jazz, and I pretend to be good at playing guitar when no one’s watching.
Favorite food. Mashed Potatoes. I would eat boxes of instant mashed potatoes in college.
Family. I’m the youngest of three siblings, but also the tallest, much to the dismay of my older brother
