Broadcaster Megan Alexander on the Joy of Christmas


You will find Megan Alexander reporting daily on the longest-running, top-rated syndicated national news magazine television show, Inside Edition. She also owns a production company, M. Alexander Productions, and is the executive producer and host of the nationally syndicated show, Small Town Christmas, premiering December 5th, 12th, 19th and Christmas Eve at 8 PM CT on UPtv.

Small Town Christmas brings the gift of encouragement to warm the heart of America during these difficult times. “Christmas is the time of year when you can speak about Jesus’s birth and story—and people are more open to listening to it than any other time of year. I love showcasing how all these small towns bring the Christmas story and season alive,” shares Megan. 

Tune in as Megan crisscrosses the United States visiting small towns at Christmas inncluding Branson, MO, Bethlehem, PA, Natchitoches, LA, and Summerville, SC. The show features unique ways each town and the people in it celebrate the holiday season such as Christmas concerts, visits with Santa, and showcasing how small businesses throughout the country are making this time of year merry and memorable, and much more.

“I am so excited to celebrate and share the joys and wonders that America’s small towns offer us all this Holiday Season!” says Megan.  


Since she was a little girl, Megan has been a Christmas enthusiast. She explains, “I have been a fan of Christmas since I was a little girl. It started when I was 5 and saw the Nutcracker Ballet and it’s never left me. It’s a time of year when as an adult, you are given permission to be a kid.”

Some of Megan’s family traditions include a “flashlight candy cane hunt” where her three kids invite all their friends, and they search for hidden candy canes all over the backyard at night.

Megan also throws a big holiday party each year. She’s always on the lookout for nativity scenes to drive or walk thru. She has fond memories of playing the Angel Gabriel at her church when she was young. Other family traditions include cooking recipes from her Grandma Lorraine’s cookbook, watching Christmas movies together and making gingerbread houses with her kids. Her family also likes to give back by being a part of an annual coat drive, feeding the homeless, and more. 


For the 2015/2016 seasons, Alexander was a Special Correspondent for CBS Television covering “Thursday Night Football.” She currently announces the US Women’s Soccer games. She was the recipient of a Telly award in 2020 for hosting the country music event “Keep the Music Playing.”
