Alex Biston Career
Biston works for KCAL News as a meteorologist. She was employed by Central Oregon’s KTVZ, an NBC affiliate, as a reporter, anchor, and forecaster before moving to the Central Coast. She had previously worked for the ABC/CBS affiliate in Santa Barbara, KEYT, as a reporter for the Ventura County bureau and as a weather forecaster before joining CBS.
According to her, the Santa Barbara and Ventura areas will never be the same after the 2018 Thomas Fire and the ensuing debris flow in Montecito.
She was a field reporter at the time, and her experience covering nonstop fires and, only a few weeks later, a disastrous mud and debris flow demonstrated to Southern California and the rest of the globe the force of Mother Nature.
Her preferred weather is the least thrilling. Forecasting Santa Ana wind occurrences is intriguing, but it may not be her favorite. She associates those winds with deadly wildfires, thus there are numerous dangers associated with Santa Anas.
Alex claims that if she weren’t a meteorologist, she would probably work in the communications area. She’s always been interested in that area of her career, so maybe public relations.
