Biography

​   
Growing up as a highly competitive elite athlete, Alex Kraemer always knew her future would be in sports.  With a remarkable knowledge of sports, a vibrant personality, and an incomparable work ethic, Alex is quickly establishing herself as a mainstay in front of the camera as the current Boston Bruins Rinkside Reporter for the New England Sports Network (NESN) in Boston, MA.

From elementary through high school, Alex played soccer at the highest level.  She spent five years on the Olympic Developmental Team while simultaneously serving as co-captain of her Region III Premier League team.  She also helped her Super Y team reach Nationals and won three straight state championships.  Alex would have continued her winning streak but two injuries ended her soccer career right before college.    

At The University of Georgia, Alex studied psychology with an emphasis on sports psychology.  During her time at UGA, Alex was a member of the Diamond Darlings squad for the University’s DI baseball team.  Her senior year, she made the transition to assistant to the Sports Facilitator for Baseball within UGA’s athletic department, where she helped with the baseball recruiting process and learned how to manage time-sensitive scheduling matters for players.

Alex spent two undergraduate summers working baseball promotions, first for the Gwinnett Braves - a local triple-A baseball team - in 2011, and then for the Atlanta Braves in 2012.

After graduating Magna Cum Laude from UGA with a B.S. in Psychology in 2013, Alex immediately entered UGA’s Sports Management Master’s program - the number three sports management program in the country.

During her first semester in graduate school, Alex began interning with the Event Management and Promotions sector of Emory University’s Athletic Department.  This led to an internship with Emory’s baseball team in the spring semester, as well as her becoming the host for a weekly web series for the Association for the Protection of Collegiate Athletes.

While obtaining her Master’s, Alex was introduced to promotional and spokes modeling. These jobs gave her more of the on-camera experience that she thrives on.  Soon, Alex decided to combine her sports background with her comfort and enjoyment of being on-camera, as she made the transition to sportscaster.

In her final semester of UGA’s Master’s program, Alex worked as the media and broadcasting assistant for the Gwinnett Gladiators, a professional hockey team of the ECHL.  Alex wrote all post-game press releases for home games, and was the main assistant to the play-by-play broadcaster.  After graduating early with a Master’s of Science in Sports Management in December of 2014, Alex was promoted to the official Rinkside Reporter for the Gladiators. 

For the remainder of the 2014-2015 hockey season, Alex served as the on-camera reporter and interviewed the Gwinnett Gladiators before each home game.  At the end of that same season, the management granted Alex the job of conducting all post-game interviews from the Gladiators’ bench. 

Alex was the on-camera reporter/in-arena host for the NHL Philadelphia Flyers for two seasons.  She hosted the Flyers pre-game and intermission shows, as well as promotional contests at all TV breaks and stoppages in play.  Alex also attended and hostsed community events for featured videos on the Flyers’ official website.  

For the Fall of 2016, Alex was the host of her own weekly series, "Run It Back," for Whistle Sports, a new global media company that is re-imagining sports around the world.

Alex was the in-stadium and on-camera reporter for New York City FC of the MLS for the 2017 season.  She hosted the show within Yankee Stadium for all NYCFC home games, conducted fan games and interviews, as well as reported from the pitch via coach and player interviews and pre-game matchup notes.

Most recently, Alex became the official rinkside reporter for the Boston Bruins on NESN.  [About NESN] "NESN has consistently been one of the top-rated regional sports networks in the country with award-winning Red Sox and Bruins coverage. The network is delivered to 4 million homes throughout the six-state New England region and an additional 4.5 million homes nationally as NESN National."   

Whether actively participating in athletics or interviewing athletes on-camera, sports will always be a part of Alex’s healthy and active lifestyle.
