Alexander Gonzalez produces the afternoon newscasts airing during All Things Considered. He enjoys helping tell the South Florida story through audio and digital platforms. Alex is interested in a little of everything from business to culture to politics.
A Miami native, Alex has been in the journalism game since high school. He was editor of his high school and college newspapers. After graduating from the University of Miami, he first arrived at WLRN as the summer 2015 digital intern.

Before returning to Miami, Alex lived in New York, where he earned his master’s in journalism from NYU. In between, he also spent a year teaching English in France on a Fulbright grant.
In his spare time, Alex looks for discount books and listens to podcasts – his favorites include “Death, Sex & Money,” “Spooked” and “99% Invisible.”
