A broadcast journalist who got his start on the WRST-FM airwaves is now a daily fixture on Wisconsin Public Radio.

Alex Crowe, a 2015 graduate of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s radio TV film (RTF) program, recently became WPR’s host of NPR’s Morning Edition. The show runs from 5 to 9 a.m. weekdays, blending the national broadcast with stories and features from the WPR team.

Crowe joins the WPR team that’s long linked to UWO. Before coming to Oshkosh, Davidson spent 18 years there as a news producer and afternoon newscaster.

With experience on the streets and in the studio, and both at the mic and running things behind the scenes, Crowe said he’s happy where he is at Morning Edition—feeding the day’s news to Wisconsin, maybe with their breakfast and morning commute.

“People are always going to be looking for news when there is a major headline or something but I like being the person day in and day out that people can go to and can ask what’s happening,” he said. “That’s something I take very personally and I really enjoy the opportunity to be able to play that role in people’s lives.”

Be sure to congratulate Crowe on Twitter.
