Alexandra Leslie

Alexandra joined the 12 News team in April 2018 as a morning reporter.

Previously, Alexandra worked for WVNY/WFFF in Burlington, Vermont. There, she worked as a producer, anchor, and general assignment reporter. In a market covering three states, Alexandra covered everything from the New York prison break to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign and the 2016 New Hampshire Senate and gubernatorial races.

In 2014, Alexandra graduated from the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College with a B.A. in Journalism. There, she was involved with the student-run radio and television programs all four years of school. She received a New York State Associated Press Broadcasters Association first-place award for best news story in 2013.

While in college, Alex interned with WHDH in Boston during the summers of 2012 and 2013. She worked alongside award-winning investigative reporter Hank Phillippi-Ryan. In 2013, Alex also interned with a tech blog while studying abroad in London.

Alexandra grew up in North Reading, Massachusetts. Her family is scattered throughout the Bay State, and she’s thrilled to be within an hour’s driving distance to see them.

Alexandra also has a mild form of Cystic Fibrosis, a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. She’s open to talking about it – if you have questions, just ask!

In her free time, Alex can be found walking her rescue dog, Eddie the beagle. She also loves to explore new restaurants, find speakeasies and binge-watch Netflix. If she’s awake for it, she also loves a good game of HQ Trivia.
