Alex Hobson

After living in almost every other part of Florida - and always being jealous of the Gulf Coast sunsets -  Alex Hobson is thrilled to make the Tampa Bay area her home. Alex joined the ABC Action News team in April 2013 and you can catch her reporting throughout the week. 

Prior to working in Tampa, Alex spent the last two years reporting for another "Action News" in Jacksonville, Florida. She has also worked for stations in Panama City Beach and Gainesville. 

But Alex's journalistic journey really began in Weimer Hall at the University of Florida. It was there, among the cameras and the chaos, she realized her love for this industry. 

Her work has earned national recognition at the Hearst Broadcast Competition in San Francisco. She has also won seven Florida Associated Press awards. 

When she's not working, this newlywed enjoys exploring the area with her husband, Will. 

She's always looking for stories. You can connect with Alex on Facebook and Twitter or email her your ideas at  alex.hobson@wfts.com
