Alexa Green joined the FOX59/CBS4 team as a morning reporter in June 2017 and is thrilled to be in the Hoosier state covering the stories that matter to you!
Before moving to Indy, Alexa was a reporter for Spectrum News in Binghamton & Syracuse NY, covering stories in some of the snowiest cities in the country.
When she wasn’t outside reporting on the snow (or the cold!) Alexa broke dozens of stories and landed exclusive interviews, including one with prison escapee David Sweat’s mother, speaking with her just hours after her son was captured alive. She also is an AP-award winning reporter for her stories on a fatal fire that killed two young children and the tragic murder of a 21-month year old.
A Jersey girl at heart, Alexa is a proud graduate of Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications ( Go Orange!).
When she isn’t working, you can find Alexa out running, reading and trying out new restaurants around in the area. If you have a story idea, or just want to say hi, she’d love to hear from you at AGreen@FOX59.com.
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — She’s known as the “can lady” around town. You might have seen her driving around the Circle City in her truck hauling hundreds of aluminum cans. But Indianapolis resident Mary Stump is using all those cans for good! “It’s not just trash, it’s cash. Literally when you go the scrap yard you get paid in cash,” she explained. That’s what the north side resident has been doing for 12 years. It started when she realized Indianapolis Public Schools and […]
SPEEDWAY, Ind. — Temperatures are mild for this time of the year, but sooner or later, freezing temperatures will return to Indiana. When that happens, a local organization wants to make sure everyone is warm. “There’s always someone walking with just a sweatshirt,” said Speedway Cares member Maddie Hamblen. It was those families that Speedway resident Robin Emerson wanted to help, and she figured a coat drive, was the best way to do that. “We knew there were tons of […]
BROAD RIPPLE, Ind. — Some major changes could soon be coming to Broad Ripple Park, but some residents say they have serious concerns. Indy Parks officials are hoping to enter into partnership with Community Health Network to build a new family center, which would include a health care clinic. The partnership would allow the parks department to build a new $19 million facility, which parks leaders say they wouldn’t be able to afford otherwise. “We’re very grateful, and we get […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Health officials say the U.S. is on track for one of the worst flu seasons in decades. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, says people need to take the illness seriously and protect themselves. “Flu can kill you, flu can make you very sick,” he explained. According to the CDC, as of last week, over 6.4 million people were infected. Nearly 3,000 people have died, and over 55,000 people have been […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — It’s a pain Indianapolis resident Katie Kirkhoff says is hard to describe. “I lost my son last year, August 28, after five weeks, to SIDS.” After that, Kirkhoff grieved in her own way by turning to the Internet. “Part of that led me down a road of finding out Indiana’s maternal and infant death rates and how high they were,” she said. She then shared those statistics with her best friend Steffany Stoeffler, who was just as […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Detectives with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department are investigating a shooting on the city’s far east side that resulted in a woman being transported to the hospital. Police were originally called out to a domestic disturbance to a home on Kristen Lane around 2:15 a.m. Then a minute later, a call came in for person shot. Our crew at the scene saw several officers speaking to someone on the home’s front porch. They also briefly witnessed officers […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – New Year’s Eve is supposed to be a night of celebration, but it also happens one of the most dangerous nights on the roadways. That’s why it’s key to plan ahead. Before attending any festivities, choose a designated driver responsible for driving you and others home. If that’s not an option, you have plenty of other choices, including calling a taxi or using a ride sharing service like Uber or Lyft. Keep in mind, for those ride sharing […]
CARMEL, Ind. — It was once rated one of the worst intersections in all of Indiana, but after three years of construction, the interchange project at 96th Street and Keystone Avenue is complete. The $28.7 million project removed the traffic light at one of the city’s most congested and dangerous intersections. Drivers will now be able to drive up and down Keystone Avenue without stopping and use the roundabout under the bridge to go left on 96th Street. The work […]
LAWRENCE, Ind– Santa’s not the only one working hard this Christmas Day. For many of you, Christmas was spent celebrating with friends and family, and enjoying a home-cooked meal. But for first responders and police departments, the work doesn’t stop just because it’s a holiday. “Some years it is slow. Other times we have a lot of domestics. You just never know, so you always just have to be ready and alert,” said Sgt. Matthew Miller of the Lawrence Police […]
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The countdown is on. Christmas is almost here. The holidays are supposed to be a joyful time, but for so many Hoosiers just putting together a holiday meal is a struggle. “Hunger doesn’t discriminate whatsoever, so each community is a little bit different,” said Gleaners Director of Food Acquisition Jeff McDonald. It’s a challenge Kroger and Gleaners are trying to tackle by taking unsold, yet usable food and giving it to the people who need it the […]
