Alexis Smith
I am thrilled to join the ABC7 morning team! As a Michigan native, I grew up hearing all about the Bay Area. My parents lived here in the early 70s, and even named my older sister Marin, after Marin County.

Fast forward several years, and I was a student at University of Michigan, enamored with the broadcasting world. I got my foot in the door as an intern at legendary rock station WRIF in Detroit, and landed my first on-air position at another rock station in Kalamazoo. That was followed by radio shows in San Antonio and Dallas, TX, where I eventually transitioned into traffic reporting. I covered transportation for Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket, KLIF-FM, and WFAA, before taking a full time job as traffic anchor for KIRO 7 in Seattle, WA. As part of the Emmy award winning morning show, I reported on everything from the Skagit River Bridge collapse, to the saga of Bertha, the tunnel boring machine, and everything in between.

When I'm not watching the roads, I love spending time with my husband. We met in Seattle and were just married in June 2016. I played basketball and softball all through school, and he's a collegiate football player so we're definitely into sports. I also love to travel, read, run, and catch a live concert if my bedtime allows it these days.

Alexis reports for ABC7 Morning News. Catch her weekdays from 4:30 - 7 a.m.
