Mary Alex Anders is a multi-media news/sports journalist for South Georgia Television News, joining the team in June 2022.
Mary Alex is ecstatic to begin her professional broadcasting career where her athletic and academic life was nurtured. She is an alumna of Tift County Highschool and returns to South Georgia freshly graduating from Mississippi State University with a degree in broadcast communication. Mary Alex is the daughter of Sheri and Ashley Anders and has the luxury of being the oldest sibling to her younger brother, Cade, and sister, Camden.
During her time at Mississippi State, she was a member of Delta Gamma Sorority and had the honor of working with MSU athletics, the SEC Network, Sports Illustrated, Maxx South Broadband, and Take 30 News.
Mary Alex says,
“My love for sports has been deeply rooted within myself and family for as long as I can remember and I have always had a passion for telling stories and helping others around me. My goal as a news and sports reporter is to be a voice for the communities who feel voiceless and a constant advocate for athletes and coaches whose lives are much more than just a name on the back of a jersey. I want my community to understand that your stories are not mine, I am just the person telling them, and this responsibility is not something I take lightly. I understand my platform as a reporter is important and I plan to use it to positively impact the communities around me and build meaningful relationships with those I serve. From the stories that are heartbreaking, to the stories that celebrate championships, my only hope is that I uplift each voice authentically and tell every story in the most genuine way possible! However, when I am not covering news and sports of merit across Southwest Georgia, you can find me rooting for the Dallas Cowboys, ringing my cowbell (Hail State!), traveling and spoiling my furbaby, Paris with unlimited pup-cups from Starbucks! I am excited and so grateful for the opportunity to serve you, South Georgia!”
You can see Mary Alex weeknights on WSWG CBS 44 and WSST TV55.
