Lexi Moore joined the News 2 team in January of 2021 after completing four years at Coastal Carolina University where she earned her degree in Sports Communication and Journalism.
She is a Carolina girl at heart, growing up in a small-town outside of Charlotte, NC called Mint Hill. Lexi enjoyed vacationing with her family at the beaches in the Carolina’s every summer and knew Charleston was a place for her.
During her four years at Coastal, she was a member of Alpha Delta Pi and part of the CCU dance team where she was awarded captain during her senior season. Lexi’s favorite part of her dance experience at Coastal was being able to dance at every home football and basketball game and traveling to New Orleans to cheer on the men’s basketball team at the Sunbelt Championship tournament.
Also, during her senior year, Lexi took on an internship at our sister station, WBTW in Myrtle Beach, SC for her last semester. Lexi got the opportunity during her internship to interview presidential candidates such as Bernie Sanders and Tom Steyer. Her having those opportunities is where her passion for storytelling truly took off.
She is excited to start her journey as Charlestonian and learn all about what makes the area so amazing. In her free time, Lexi enjoys watching sports, hanging out on the beach, and with her Golden Retriever, Louie.
