Alexandra Cranford WWL-TV – Career
Alexandra Cranford works as a meteorologist for WWL-TV in New Orleans, where she forecasts for the New Orleans area as well as the tropics. Alexandra was named Best Weathercast in Louisiana by the Associated Press of Louisiana in 2015, and Best Weathercast in New Orleans by the Press Club of New Orleans in 2016. Alexandra has also been recognized by the Louisiana Association of Broadcasters and Women in Media. Alexandra, a native of New Orleans, realized early on that weather had a big impact on people’s lives. She grew up on Slidell’s Northshore, where she and her family experienced nearly every hurricane. “We’d board up the house, settle in, and watch the WWL meteorologists for as long as we could,” she explained.
It’s a privilege to now be on the other side of that, ensuring people’s safety and keeping them informed during our countless severe weather occurrences.” Alexandra has worked as a NASA Science and Engineering Apprentice in the Naval Research Laboratory’s Office of Oceanography. Before joining WWL-TV in 2012, she worked as a weather forecaster in Monroe and Shreveport, Louisiana. Alexandra had always enjoyed science, but it wasn’t until she was in college that she decided to pursue a career in meteorology. Her passion for reading and English led her to study mass communication and work at LSU’s campus broadcast news station. She realized she had found a satisfying intersection of science and English when she began dabbling in weather forecasting for university-wide newscasts. Alexandra spends a lot of her free time reading (classics and science fiction are her favorites). She also rides horses, bakes, and takes long walks in almost any weather.
