Lexi Sutter is a nightside reporter and fill-in anchor.
Lexi joined the 41 Action News team in August 2014. She prides herself on being a “people’s reporter,” telling stories that will make an impact on the community and resonate with viewers. She has uncovered sexual abuse allegations inside a local VA hospital, deployed to Guam with the Air National Guard, chased severe weather across the Heartland, and followed two World Series runs.
Before joining the 41 Action News team, Lexi worked at WMBD-TV in Peoria, Ill. where she was an anchor and reporter. She was the first reporter on the scene of a F-4 tornado that leveled the town of Washington, Ill. The news team won an Emmy and a national Edward R. Murrow award for breaking news coverage of that storm. 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.
Lexi grew up in the small town of Le Roy, Ill. and is a graduate of the University of Arizona, where she majored in Journalism and double minored in pre-health and business administration. She was president of the Pi Beta Phi sorority, an organization she still dedicates time to today. She’s also involved with the St. Jude and Shadow Buddies organizations. When she’s not working, she loves to spend time with family and friends, get a good work out in, see new sights and attend concerts and games.
