|Alexis DelChiaro is a native of Sacramento, California where she discovered very early on in grade school her desire for a career in journalism. “It was a mock newscast in Mr. Landis’ music class where I first thought, ‘Hey! This is fun, and I think you can actually make a career out of it!’” From then on, Alexis knew she’d discovered her passion.Alexis is a graduate of the beautiful University of California, Santa Barbara, with a major in communications, and a minor in Spanish. One of her favorite experiences in college was studying abroad in Spain, learning the language and the culture. Another wonderful experience was her internship in Manhattan at Good Morning America. Her early journalistic efforts also included football reporting at Santa Barbara’s KEYT-TV.
Alexis got her start in Arizona in 2004 at KYMA Newschannel 11 in Yuma as a morning news and weather anchor. After that she was hooked on the early shift and moved to Phoenix for a job at FOX 10. From September 2006 to September 2010, Alexis was at KSAZ in Phoenix where she co-anchored FOX 10 Arizona Morning from 4:30-10am along with FOX 10 News @ Noon.
In October 2010, Alexis joined the KUSI News family, San Diego’s News Channel, as the new co-anchor of Good Morning San Diego, weekdays from 5-10am. “I am so thrilled to be back in my home state, working in one the most beautiful cities in the country.”
In January 2014, Alexis joined the team at KNBC’s Today in LA to help Angelenos navigate the busy freeways. When she’s not tracking the early morning commute, Alexis keeps busy covering red carpets for events like movie premieres, The Golden Globes and even the American Television Awards in London.
Alexis has been fortunate to cover a wide range of stories in her career, from interviewing American Idols to trying out for So You Think You Can Dance to touring the Grand Canyon by helicopter.
But it’s the daredevil in Alexis that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats!
Alexis had the opportunity to fly with the Navy’s prestigious Blue Angels, but it wasn’t until her pilot handed over the stick that she got nervous. “Everyone always wants to know one thing about flying with the Blue Angels and the answer is no… I didn’t pass out or get sick!” Alexis was also lucky enough to skydive with the elite US Army Golden Knights.
When not doing the news, Alexis enjoys seeing the world. You’ll also find her running, doing yoga and spending time with her family and friends. She can often be found volunteering time with charitable organizations, including the Make A Wish Foundation, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the American Cancer Society.
