Meet the Team

Alexandra Miller

Politics Reporter

Alex has been an reporter (at least in her mind) since she was four. Yes, she forced her friends to do pretend newscasts instead of playing house. She's covered politics in D.C. for nearly three years, and joined the Newsy team in August 2017. When Alex isn't delivering the news while standing on an apple box, she's probably scrolling through Twitter (@AlexMillerNews) and watching her beloved Redskins continue to disappoint.
