Alex Stockwell was born in raised in New Braunfels as a proud and mighty Unicorn! She later upgraded from one horn to two when she attended the University of Texas at Austin to become a Longhorn. 

Alex began her career at an NBC affiliate station in McAllen, TX where several of her stories covering the 2013 immigration crisis were picked up nationwide. From there, Alex joined the Spectrum News team in Austin. During her time in Austin, Alex covered several stories on the nation's oldest World War II veteran, whose joy, wit, and love of life still inspires her to this day.

Alex is a passionate San Antonio Spurs fan and, of course, cheers hard for all Longhorn sports. Alex is also a fan of the Houston Texans (sorry, Cowboy Nation) and roots for the Houston Astros baseball team. When she's not delivering the morning news, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, eating as much queso as she can, and exploring the outdoors with her dog, Molly.
