Alex Silverman is a senior at Syracuse University and an anchor and reporter for conservative news talker WSYR in Syracuse, but not for long…
Bonneville’s hired him as a news anchor for conservative news talker KIROFM. He’ll arrive in Seattle after graduating in May. Where he’ll land in the KIRO news pantheon will be fascinating to watch.
The young broadcaster has racked up a lot of experience and accomplishments in his short career. (one might say he's bit of a hot shot).

According to the bio on his website, Silverman started with WSYR on weekends as an anchor/producer/reporter. He eventually became the station’s weekday morning drive news anchor. Even though he was only with WSYR for two years, he had the chance to cover some big events (for both WSYR and Fox News Radio), including the mass shooting in Binghamton almost a year ago, and he went to Washington to cover President Obama’s inauguration.
Prior to joining Clear Channel, Silverman was involved with WAER 88.3 and Z89 (WJPZ) on the Syracuse University Campus, eventually becoming President and GM of the latter. This past January, he won first place nationally in the Radio Features category of the Hearst Journalism Awards. He’ll be graduating in May with a 3.9 GPA.
