Major: Political Science Graduation: 2021 Interesting Fact: Alex and WCBN Sports Senior Advisor Jeremy Parks once spent $74.22 in one meal at Chili’s in Tampa, Florida Bio: Alex is a lifelong Ann Arborite and Michigander. He’s a nostalgic Red Wings fan, suffering yet optimistic Lions fan, patient Tigers fan, and cynical Pistons fan. In addition to pro sports allegiances, Alex was raised a Michigan St fan and became a converted Michigan fan upon attending UMich, so beware, there’s still some Spartan blood left in him. In his time at WCBN Sports, Alex has called men and women’s basketball, hockey, women’s lacrosse, baseball, softball, and men’s soccer, including the 2018 Frozen Four and the 2018 Big Ten Softball Tournament. In addition to calling games, Alex is a regular on The Daily Sports Report as well as being a member of East of the Rockies, WCBN Sports’s softball podcast and Winged Helmet Wrangler, WCBN Sports’s new football podcast. He will be serving the organization as Co-Director of Broadcasting with Daniel Thompson and Nate Sorensen, as well as serving as Director of Podcasting during the 2018-19 campaign. Whether it be about sports, history, politics/elections, film, music, or life, he’s always down for a chat.
