News has been Alejandra’s passion since she was a little girl. Growing up and watching the evening news with her parents she often would say to herself “I want to do that!” After graduating high school in Garland, Texas, she took several different paths, trying out new classes like marketing and print journalism. Eventually she decided to go with what she has always known she wanted to do, broadcast journalism. She transferred to the University of North Texas where she fell in love with the business.
Alejandra is a Texas native, growing up in Dallas. She started her career as an MMJ for Telemundo in Abilene. This was a learning experience like no other, especially for her Spanish speaking skills. Following her time in Abilene, she transferred to the border town of El Paso. Alejandra started as a weekend anchor/ reporter at KTSM and is currently the morning anchor and producer for the noon show. The perks of living in a border town are endless. She’s been fortunate enough to cover stories that affect two countries. Her time in El Paso has given her the chance to go on a ride-along with Border Patrol and report out of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico ahead of the Pope’s visit.
But her career is just getting started and she’s excited to see what the future holds. And more importantly she looks forward to growing as a storyteller.
Outside of work, Alejandra is a homebody and really enjoys spending time watching Netflix. She spends much of her spare time searching out restaurants with great Mexican food.
