Lexi Sutter is an award-winning reporter who joined the ABC 15 team in June 2017.
Lexi worked for KSHB in Kansas City before moving to Phoenix. During her three years in KC, she exposed dozens of sexual abuse allegations inside a local VA hospital, deployed to Guam with the Air National Guard, chased severe weather across the Heartland and followed the Kansas City Royals through two World Series runs.
She got her first on-air job in Peoria, Ill., near her hometown of Le Roy. She was the first reporter on the scene of a F-4 tornado, winning the WMBD news team an Emmy and Edward R. Murrow award for breaking news coverage. Lexi was also honored by the Illinois Broadcasters Association for a story she did about a 96-year-old man who wrote a song for his late wife. “Sweet Lorraine” became a viral sensation, breaking a Billboard record and making it into iTunes Top 10 list.
This Midwest girl is no stranger to the desert. She graduated from the University of Arizona, where she majored in journalism and minored in pre-health and business administration. She was president of the Pi Beta Phi sorority, an organization she still dedicates time to today.
When Lexi isn't working, she loves to spend time with family and friends, get a good work out in, see new sights and attend concerts and sports games.
