National Murrow-winning journalist Alex Rozier joined KING 5 as a reporter in June of 2014. He is thrilled about the opportunity to continue telling stories in the great Pacific Northwest.

Alex is an award winning journalist who began his career in Columbia, Missouri with the NBC affiliate KOMU. After four years in Mid-Missouri he headed west and accepted a position in Spokane, at KHQ, the NBC affiliate in Eastern Washington. Alex reported and anchored while he was in Columbia and Spokane, but his passion is his work out in the field where he is able to connect with every type of person and share their story.

He's covered several major news events including the devastating tornadoes in Moore, Oklahoma and Joplin, Missouri. One of his first assignments at KING was to report from the front lines of the Carlton Complex Fires. Those fires turned out to be the largest in Washington state history.

His proudest moments as a journalist are when he's able to make a positive change in the lives of the people he meets. Alex worked briefly for YouTube and Pulitzer in 2010 when he received a grant to produce a documentary on the disabled in the developing world. His documentary, "The Culture That Crawls", won a regional Murrow award, but more importantly, it raised a lot of money for the disabled in Central America.

Alex graduated from the University of Missouri School of Journalism, but he was born and raised in Northern Minnesota. His parents still live in "The Land of 10,000 Lakes" and so does his brother. In June of 2014, two days before Alex began at KING 5, his only sibling was ordained a priest. Father Blake serves at a Catholic Church in Brainerd, Minnesota.

When he's not focused on his work as a storyteller you will likely find him running at Green Lake, talking to his wonderful family back home, or singing in his car to the music on the radio. In his spare time Alex is a funeral and wedding singer. He's been a part of several a cappella groups in the past.

He's thrilled to be in Seattle and would love to hear from you. E-mail him story ideas anytime at arozier@king5.com, or find him on twitter, @AlexRozier.
