Alex Koma

I'm Alex Koma, and ever since I was nine years old, I've known I've wanted to be a journalist.

I'm currently working as an associate producer with NBC 29 WVIR-TV in Charlottesville, Va. I help produce a variety of newscasts by writing, editing and creating video to tell stories relevant to our audience.

I spent the last four years attending Virginia Tech, studying communication and professional writing as part of the class of 2014. I worked as the general manager of VTTV, the student televsion station on campus, and as the managing editor of the Collegiate Times, the student-run newspaper.

I also interned with the video unit of VT's University Relations department and I'm working with Bleacher Report as a member of their Breaking News Team and as a Featured Columnist covering Virginia Tech football. I was also a collegiate correspondent with USA Today, writing stories relevant to a college audience. This past summer, I worked as an editorial intern with Patch.com, a hyperlocal news website.

I love good stories, so if you have one, speak up!
