Alexis Hughes

Sports Anchor/Multimedia Journalist

Moselle, MS

Lexi Hughes is a sports anchor and reporter for WDAM 7. She’s originally from Northern Virginia and grew up just outside Washington, D.C.

From a young age, Lexi knew she wanted to be a sports reporter. Her passion for sports journalism took her to Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA, where she studied Broadcast Journalism.

Lexi got her start in TV interning at WJLA-TV in Washington, D.C. and at WDAM’s sister station, WWBT/NBC12 in Richmond. During her senior year of college, Lexi worked as a News Content Specialist at WWBT/NBC12.

During her internships, Lexi helped cover the Congressional baseball shooting in 2017, Redskins training camp, NASCAR, VCU Basketball and much more.

Lexi is a huge fan of the New Orleans Saints and the Washington Capitals.

In her free time, she loves going to Gulf Shores, AL, spending time with friends and family, going to concerts and trying out new places to eat. She’s happy to be only a short drive to family in New Orleans.

Lexi is thrilled to join the sports team at WDAM and is excited to share her passion for sports with the Pine Belt!
