Elex is a proud USC Trojan who graduated first in his class from the Annenberg School for Journalism. He earned Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa honors while picking up dual degrees in broadcast journalism and political science. At USC, Michaelson hosted numerous campus broadcasts, and interned at several local stations and at NBC News in Washington.
Elex worked as a weekend morning anchor and weeknight reporter at XETV's San Diego 6 News.
The self-described "political junkie" reported live from the Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama, the Republican National Convention and the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. He also appeared on CNN's "Larry King Live."
Elex the winner of 5 Emmy Awards and 11 nominations.
He is especially proud of his community work: He co-founded Get Hands On, a breast cancer awareness campaign profiled by multiple national news outlets. He actively partners with Computers 2 Kids, providing technology to needy Southern California families. And, he's thrilled to profile other extraordinary non-profits who "Pay it Forward" through a special Eyewitness News series.
When he's not working, Elex enjoys going to the beach, working out, watching great films, cheering on his Trojans and, most of all, eating well and laughing with friends and family.
