Alex Derencz joined the 33/40 team as a multimedia journalist in early December of 2017.
Before coming to the Magic City, Alex was a multimedia journalist for WRBL News in Columbus, Georgia.
In his time at WRBL, Alex served as a the station’s nightside reporter and then became the station’s East Alabama Bureau Chief.
Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Alex is very familiar with the south. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Auburn University in 2015.
Before getting his official start in journalism, Alex has interned at television stations in Baltimore, MD and York, PA.
If you want to know who got the first hit at Oriole Park at Camden Yards or how many career RBI’s Cal Ripken. Jr has, ask Alex. He lives and dies with the Baltimore Orioles and can be considered a walking encyclopedia of Orioles knowledge.
In addition to the Orioles, Alex is a Washington Capitals, Auburn Tigers and NASCAR fan.
In his free time, Alex is an avid baseball player and golfer and can be found spending time with his wife, Carly, a Homewood native, and their two dogs Bogey and Birdie.
Alex is elated to call Birmingham home. Feel free to connect with him and send him story ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @AlexDerencz
