Although she is a proud Cubs fan from Chicago, Lexie is excited to be serving mid-Missouri as a reporter for KRCG 13 Live at 5,6 and 10.

Lexie is a Midwest girl who loves all things sports, food, and traveling. Lexie dreamt of becoming a reporter since the first grade and grew up playing every sport. She later accepted a full-ride scholarship to the University of Utah, where she majored in broadcast journalism with a minor in business. During her experience at Utah, Lexie spent most of her time traveling and competing in the Pac-12, and covering all sports Utah Athletics. She interned for the Big Ten Network in Chicago going into her Sophomore year at Utah, and spent three years interning for Utah athletics as a reporter. Lexie covered stories on the Pac-12 livestream, Utah athletic’s Facebook Live, and on ESPN 700 radio, Utah’s most-listened-to sports station.

Aside from Lexie’s internship experience, she also thrived in the classroom and on the tennis court as well. She graduated in the top 10 percent of her journalism class and finished ranked in the top 100 in the country in both singles in doubles.

In her spare time, you can find Lexie reading, watching sports, exercising and hanging with friends and family.
