Readers wanted to know where she went and now we can report that WSVN reporter Alexa Helms is changing stations and heading north to Chicago for what rumor has it is an anchoring job. Helms joined 7News in October 2012 from El Paso duopoly KTSM/KDBC.
As the news business goes, her new job has a South Florida connection. According to Chicago media columnist Rober Feder, Alexa Helms will anchor the 9pm Saturday and Sunday newscasts on WFLD FOX32, which haven’t had a permanent anchor since Amara Walker (Sohn) left for CNN. Walker of course used to report for WTVJ until 2012 when she moved to Chicago.
