San Antonio native Alex Lotz joined the KBTX news team in October 2012. Beyond her reporting, she produces KBTX's weekend newscasts.
Alex graduated from Texas A&M University in August 2012 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Communications & Journalism. Among her accomplishments at A&M, Alex produced and hosted ETC on KAMU, a PBS-affiliated news show. She also contributed to The AgriLeader, which selected her article on a professor who survived the 9/11 attacks as its feature story in its spring 2012 edition. In addition, Alex also served as a staff writer for Texas A&M's school paper, The Battalion.
During the summer of 2011, Alex also had the distinct privilege of interning for Peabody Award-winning reporter Frank Snepp in the special investigations department for NBC Los Angeles. While in LA, Alex helped cover exclusive stories of various scandals as well as pitched and contributed to her own story, "The Grandma Scam," which aired across southern California.
Unable to stay away from the newsroom long, upon her return from Los Angeles, Alex began what became a two-semester internship with KBTX in production and news. Alex then served as part of the station's transition team as it was rebranded as CW8 Aggieland.
In her spare time, Alex enjoys working out, going to church and being surrounded by her friends, family and her Labradors, Cage and Lulu. Thrilled to be "back home" in Bryan/College Station, Alex loves the excitement of being a journalist and enjoys meeting new people.
