Alex Berg is a journalist covering national news, women’s issues, and LGBTQ culture.
Alex is currently the co-host of AM2DM, a morning show from BuzzFeed News that airs daily at 10AM ET on Twitter. The show takes the typical morning show format and flips it on its head, with stories generated by conversations happening on Twitter in real time. Since joining AM2DM in June, Alex has interviewed 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, celebrities from Kevin Bacon to Laverne Cox and newsmakers like all eight (!) of the Scripps National Spelling Bee Champions. Her coverage regularly makes the headlines, whether she’s asking Kathy Griffin about her Trump photo controversy, talking to Olivia Munn about the #MeToo movement, or interviewing Rachel Brosnahan about criticism of Mrs. Maisel’s parenting skills.
Throughout her decade-long career as a host, producer, and writer, Alex has covered stories that explore how policy and politics impact the lives of marginalized communities. When she’s not hosting, Alex frequently writes about topics like reproductive health care, queer culture, and individuals challenging the status quo for outlets like NBC News, Teen Vogue and OUT Magazine, and regularly joins SiriusXM to discuss politics and feminism. Previously, Alex was a correspondent for the Mic series Mic Dispatch, where she hosted short documentaries airing on Facebook Watch, served as a supervising producer for AM2DM, was a producer and appeared on-air at HuffPost and was an associate producer at The Daily Beast.
As a loud and proud bisexual femme, Alex has been featured on shows, podcasts, and panels, and her coverage of LGBTQ issues has been nominated for a GLAAD Media Award. She holds an M.S. from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and a B.A. from Cornell University. Alex lives with her wife and three cats in Brooklyn and skates with Gotham Girls Roller Derby in her free time.
