Despite the fact that she is prone to seasickness, Alexa Elliott loves to scuba-dive and spend time on the water. So when she was asked to develop a new science series for WPBT2 in 2007, she jumped on the opportunity to cover some of the exciting ocean research that is conducted in Florida and the Caribbean. Alexa has worked in public broadcasting since 1996, both in public radio news as well as in television production. She has produced television programs of various genres, but nature, science and environmental programming have always been her favorite. Alexa has received numerous awards for her work, including the prestigious Communication Award presented by the National Academy of Sciences, regional Emmy Awards, a regional Edward R. Murrow Award, and an award from the Society of Environmental Journalists. She has two degrees in Broadcast Journalism – a BA from Morehead State University and a MA from the University of Florida.
