ABC News President Kim Godwin has announced that Alex Presha has been promoted to the role of correspondent. The talented journalist will move out of the Washington, D.C. bureau and set up shop in Columbus, Ohio.
“I look forward to what’s next for Alex and our entire news division as we continue to build out our team of correspondents fanned across the country, telling stories from every corner of America,” Godwin stated.
The Northwestern University graduate previously worked as a producer at NBC in New York. From there, he moved west to San Diego, California and began as a political reporter at KNSD-TV. While there, he caught the eye of ABC News as he interviewed several presidential candidates leading up to the 2020 Presidential Election. Ultimately, ABC News brought Presha over to their Washington, D.C. bureau. At ABC News, he covered the Beijing Winter Olympics in China, wildfires in California and the presidential election from the nation’s capital.
“He’s become a vital member of our team, continuously demonstrating his dogged journalism skills while covering a wide variety of stories for nearly every program and platform,” Godwin added.
