Alexis Arnold is a part of the Good Day Rochester team on 13WHAM ABC and FOX Rochester from 5 AM to 9 AM.
She’s from the Chicago suburb of Prospect Heights.
Before moving to Rochester, Alexis worked in Quincy, Illinois and Davenport, Iowa. She studied journalism at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.
It’s no secret that Alexis is passionate about arts education; she’s a lover of music. She played clarinet in the Big Red Basketball Pep Band and Marching Hundred while studying at IU.
Alexis is devoted to help bring all-types of music to children in under-served areas, giving them the opportunity to play an instrument and have an appreciation of music. She is a member of the Rochester Philharmonic League of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Inc.
She started reading music at the age of five, playing piano. After that, she played violin for four years, eventually finding her love on the clarinet, which she still plays.
Just as her passion for the arts is strong, so is her love of connecting with people. Alexis loves to help tell their stories and raise awareness on issues in the community. She enjoys giving back to her community through her time by reading and spending time with children at area schools.
Alexis is a member of the Rochester Regional Breastfeeding Coalition, helping working moms transition from maternity leave back to work.
Alexis is also a mother of three and when she’s not at work, you can find her cheering on her oldest daughter’s lacrosse team, watching her son on the ice and chasing her 2-year-old daughter pretty much everywhere, and helping her husband operate his fitness business.
