Alex Cheney

Alex Cheney joined the KYMA News 11 team in May 2015. A Southern California native, Alex is very excited for his opportunity to serve the Yuma and Imperial Valley communities!

While attending Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers!), Alex served as Sports Director for LSU’s student-run news channel, Tiger TV.  Alex graduated from LSU with a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication, Broadcast Journalism.

Alex interned with ESPN in Bristol, Connecticut in the summer of 2014.  As a studio directing intern, Alex worked directly in the studio with anchors and in the newsroom with producers.  He greatly values this experience in shaping his knowledge of his professional career.

When Alex is not working furiously in the news room you can find him back home in California, running, or reading a good book.

Alex would love to hear from you!  Feel free to leave advice, constructive criticism, funny jokes, not funny jokes, or general statements of inquiry to Also, make sure to follow and like him on social media at and
