Alex Rose is a digital anchor who joined the FOX31 and Channel 2 team in June 2018.
Alex is a New Englander, growing up in Acton, Massachusetts and landing his first job as a TV reporter in Burlington, Vermont for WFFF/WVNY. There he covered major stories from the New York prison break, where two convicted killers broke out of the Empire State’s largest maximum security prison, to Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential run in 2016. He was also the station’s statehouse reporter in Montpelier.
The land of the pine called Alex to move back down south for his second job at WGHP FOX8 in High Point, North Carolina. It’s the same area where he fell in love with television journalism while attending Elon University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in television studies in 2014. At FOX8, Alex covered big stories, including Hurricane Matthew’s impact on the coast, wildfires in Gatlinburg Tennessee, and state politics in the North Carolina legislature from a controversial bathroom bill and elections in Raleigh.
Alex and his wife Stephanie moved to Colorado with their rescue puppy Layla, and have loved every moment of adventure from the Mile High City to the mountains. If Alex isn’t working, you’ll find him hiking, biking, exploring new restaurants, dog parks and tasting different craft beers.
Telling people’s stories is Alex’s passion. Journalism is the work of the people, for the people and by the people. Alex is proud to be part of the most vibrant community in the country, and can’t wait to tell Colorado’s stories one day at a time. If you have an idea, Alex would LOVE to hear from you (or just pick your brain about what makes Colorado the best state in the country). Shoot him an email at Alex.Rose@KDVR.com.
