Alex Green joined the Times Free Press staff full-time in January 2014 after completing the paper's six-month, general assignment reporter internship.
Alex grew up in Dayton, Tenn., which is also where he studied journalism at Bryan College. He graduated from Rhea County High School in 2008.
During college, Alex covered the city of Graysville and the town of Spring City for The Herald-News.
As editor-in-chief of Bryan College's student news group, Triangle, Alex reported on the resignation of a faculty member, and he self-published the article after the school's administration forbade it appearing in Triangle.
For that, he was the lone recipient of the University of Oregon's 2013 Ancil Payne Award for Ethics in Journalism.
Outside work, Alex enjoys fishing, movies and board games.
And hanging out in Rhea County.
