Alex Pierson

Radio host

With 20 years both in the field and behind the anchor desk, Alex is known throughout the industry for her tough reporting style and getting the real story behind the headlines.

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Alex launched her media career at CHML/Y95 and CHCH TV news. Alex also worked at the New VR and was the first reporter on scene of what would become the Walkerton water tragedy. At CityTV/CP24, Alex anchored CityNews at 11 alongside the late Mark Dailey.

When Alex moved over to Global News in 2007, she won two national RTNDA awards for her investigative series into the dangers of Ontario’s trucking industry, which led to the Ontario provincial trucking licensing laws in effect today.

Most recently, Alex has covered major stories for radio – including the Tim Bosma murder trial – and has worked as a talk show host in Hamilton, Toronto, and across Canada on The Roy Green Show.
