Alex Wehrley - – Rockford’s News Leader

Alex Wehrley

13 News Today Anchor

Alex joined WREX as the anchor of 13 News Today in January 2011.

Before coming to Rockford, Alex interned at WMTV in Madison and also did freelance reporting in Chicago for various lifestyle websites.

"I love to learn every day and tell people's stories… and I've known since I was a little girl that I wanted to be an on-camera personality," said Alex. "It's so fun to interact face to face with my community, learn about their story and help spread their message to the rest of the public."

Alex is a graduate of University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Communication Arts degree. She is originally from Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Away from the job, Alex likes to spend time with family and friends, boat at her family's lake home, travel, try new restaurants, workout (loves hot yoga!), and listen to country music.
