Fox 29 Good Day Philadel­phia co­host

ALEX HOL­LEY talks secrets of the an­chor desk, Patti La­belle, and why you’ll find her at spots like Spruce Street Har­bor Park all sum­mer long. Proud­est mo­ment: Sur­viv­ing a con­stant 20-hour broad­cast in cel­e­bra­tion of Good Day Philadel­phia’s 20th an­niver­sary. View­ers, friends, and col­leagues stopped by the station, even in the mid­dle of the night, to drop off food and say hello. Philadel­phia is so…: Philadel­phi­ans are so pas­sion­ate about ev­ery­thing that is im­por­tant to them, from sports to mu­sic to fa­vorite TV per­son­al­i­ties! Fa­mous Philadel­phian you most want to have din­ner with: Patti La­belle, be­cause hope­fully she would cook. Patti, if you’re read­ing this I’m ready for my in­vite! I’ll bring a salad. Sum­mer in the city: After sur­viv­ing the win­ter months here, this South­ern girl loves to be out­side: The Dell Sum­mer Mu­sic Series, Smooth Jazz Sum­mer Nights Series, Wawa Wel­come Amer­ica July 4th, Made in Amer­ica. One thing peo­ple would be sur­prised to know about you: I wear sweat­pants un­der my dress when I’m an­chor­ing the news, be­cause it’s so cold. Oh, the things they can’t see when you’re sit­ting at the an­chor desk! Fa­vorite Philly hang­outs: Bok Bar, One Lib­erty Ob­ser­va­tion Deck--any rooftop or el­e­vated place where I can clearly catch a glimpse of the Philly sky­line.
