Bio

Alex Goldsmith is a general assignment reporter for News 13 specializing in politics and sports. He’s been with the station since December 2011, covering New Mexico and his home town of Santa Fe.

Alex got his start in Santa Fe. He hosted a radio show and was the public address announcer and briefly the play-by-play voice for the Santa Fe Roadrunners hockey team. After graduating from Santa Fe Prep, Alex pursued a degree in broadcast journalism at the University of Southern California. He was the Sports Director for the Student News network and did radio play by play for the USC Trojans hockey team. Towards the end of his collegiate career, Alex made the transition towards doing harder news stories for WILX-TV in Lansing, MI. There he covered Michigan politics and traveled with the MSU Spartans for their Capital One Bowl appearance in 2011. Alex then returned to the Land of Enchantment to join KRQE News 13.

Alex reports on weekdays at 10pm and occasionally fills in as a news and sports anchor. Alex has covered the State Legislature’s annual sessions the last two years, updating viewers on state politics from the Roundhouse both on air and on his Politics blog. He’s also traveled with the Lobos for NCAA trips to Portland and Salt Lake City.

In his spare time, Alex enjoys an eclectic mix of photography, video games, cheering on his USC Trojans and reading non-fiction. His favorite spot to take pictures in town is at the Albuquerque BioParks.
