Alexa Liacko

I currently a national correspondent with the Scripps National Team based in Denver. I currently work on our weekly political show, The Race. Through this show, I’ve been able to live a lifelong dream of traveling the country, telling stories and talking about political issues impacting families every day.

I joined the team in the midst of the pandemic after working in Atlanta, Georgia as a multimedia journalist and anchor at FOX 5 Atlanta. Prior to that, I was a multimedia journalist at the Scripps ABC affiliate in Tucson, Arizona, KGUN9 on Your Side, often reporting on issues at the border.

In my time at USC, I was the managing editor of the Annenberg Media Center, helping direct the university’s newsroom and its coverage across Los Angeles.

I am a Southern California native, and when I’m not reporting, you’ll find me cooking a new recipe, hiking outdoors in the beautiful Colorado mountains or taking a trip to the beach to visit family. Have questions? Feel free to reach out!
