Alex Freedman

Alex Freedman is the Weekend Edition Anchor for 9 On Your Side.

He joined the newsteam in February 2010 as a General Assignment Reporter and Digital Journalist.

Alex graduated from East Carolina University with a dual degree that included a BS in Communications: Broadcast Journalism and a BA in Hispanic Studies: Spanish Language.

He was born right here in Pirate Country, Greenville, North Carolina, and is proud to admit that he, indeed, bleeds purple and gold.

Alex has lived in Greenville all his life, but that hasn't kept him from broadening his horizons.  Alex spent almost five months abroad in Guadalajara, Mexico, where he studied culture and language.  He has also visited multiple cities in Vietnam including Ho Chi Minh, Da Lat, and Nha Trang, over a separate five-week venture.  Travel pieces written during his Vietnam venture received positive reviews from the International Radio and Television Society Foundation in New York and got him selected as a finalist out of more than 500 people for their fellowship program.  He feels these experiences helped to broaden his views on both national and global issues.

Alex interned at 9 On Your Side as a broadcast producer and learned the day-to-day happenings of a newsroom.  During his time interning, Alexander affirmed his love for journalism that had began during his high school days as Editor-in-Chief of his school's news magazine.
