Michelle Alegria is a multi-Emmy winning on-air personality with more than 20 years of broadcast journalism experience.
Born and raised locally, Michelle studied broadcast journalism at Columbia College Chicago. She began her broadcast career as a reporter at KOBR-TV in Roswell, New Mexico. Her next move was to El Paso, Texas where she worked as a weekend news anchor and general assignment reporter at KTSM-TV.
Her career came full circle when she moved back to Chicago as a general assignment reporter at CLTV News. In 2000, Michelle was recruited by ABC-7 to become a personality on the station’s top-rated magazine show, “190 North.” She stayed in that role for 10 years, winning several Emmy Awards along the way and co-hosting the station’s live annual New Year’s Eve show, “Countdown Chicago.”
A class at Second City Chicago spurred her interest in acting, and she earned several roles as a TV reporter, most notably in Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring,” and on popular TV shows including “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Castle,” and “How to Get Away with Murder.”
