Alex Ciccarone
Alex Ciccarone is a community journalist for ABC7NY, joining the team in March 2019 to cover stories on Long Island.

She was born and raised in Miami, Florida, but New York has always been her home away from home because her parents were originally from Brooklyn. She received her Bachelor of Science in Telecommunications at the University of Florida, where she worked on a student-run newscast, reporting on stories ranging from the 2016 presidential election to the tragic Pulse nightclub shooting. After graduation, she brought her passion for storytelling to NY1 News, where she worked as a news assistant, covering the Harvey Weinstein hearings and El Chapo's court appearances, and operated the live-shot camera for Mornings On 1.

When she's not looking for her next digital story, she can be found breaking a sweat during a run, FaceTiming her family, or trying out the next trendy food place with her friends.

Alex is happy to call Long Island her home, where she is continually discovering the hidden gems that make Suffolk County what it is today!
