Daybreak Meteorologist

Alex Kirchner

    Alex Kirchner joined the News 19 Forecast Team in August 2010 as the Weekend Meteorologist, then moved to mornings as the Daybreak Meteorologist in January 2012. He has some experience with getting up in the middle of the night to go to work, as Alex was the Morning and Noon Meteorologist for KCWY in Casper, Wyoming between 2008 and 2010 prior to moving to La Crosse.

    La Crosse is close to home for Alex. He was born and raised in Racine, Wisconsin, and spent many hours captivated by the frequent summer thunderstorms and winter snow storms. Following his passion for weather, Alex enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, obtaining his Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences degree in 2008. In May 2014, he earned the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation by the American Meteorological Society. This means Alex's graphical content, his presentation skills, and his explanation of the weather and the science behind it has been considered high quality by top meteorologists from around the nation.

    In his free time, Alex loves to run, ranging from 5K's to marathons, and plans to run many more races around the area. He also enjoys reading, hiking, cooking, spending time with his wife and their dog, and is a huge Badger and Packer fan.
