KCTV5 announced Friday that Alexis Del Cid is joining It's Your Morning as co-anchor.
Del Cid has spent the last eight years working as the morning show and noon show co-anchor at KOIN-TV in Portland, OR. She has served as a reporter and anchor at KPLC-TV in Lake Charles, LA. She began her broadcast career as a general assignment reporter at WMAQ, a radio station in Chicago.
She later worked in Champaign, IL, and Albuquerque, NM.
A graduate of the University of Iowa, Del Cid is excited about returning home to the Midwest.
Her enthusiasm, journalistic integrity, community involvement and investigative background make her a great choice for It's Your Morning, said News Director Blaise Labbe.
"We are pleased to have Alexis join our KCTV5 team. We have made a solid commitment to providing our viewers with consistent and reliable news," Labbe said. "Alexis' solid and strong news background will enhance that commitment. She is very energetic and has a unique way of engaging viewers."
