Title: Anchor/Reporter/Producer

Alicia Rubin joined the Newswatch 12 news team as an anchor and reporter in October 2017.

Before moving to Oregon, she worked as an Associate Producer for KWTV-News 9 in Oklahoma City. Originally from Kansas, she moved next door to Oklahoma and received a degree in Journalism from the University of Central Oklahoma in May of 2017. While in school she was a part of the UCentral Student Newscast and discovered her passion for storytelling while interning at News 9.

Growing up in small-town, Fredonia, KS she was always active in sports, including basketball, volleyball, track and dance. She still jumps at any opportunity to get back on the court but has since added hiking, camping, and canoeing to her long list of favorites.

She spends any free time with her husband and pup, exploring their new home in beautiful southern Oregon.

Alicia would love to hear from you! You can send her any news tips or story suggestions through Facebook or Twitter.
