Alex Curry, a veteran sports reporter with experience in several different areas, is FOX’s main sideline reporter for the Women’s World Cup in France this summer.
The Women’s World Cup is heating up this week, with perhaps the matchup of the tournament taking place on Friday afternoon, when the United States takes on the host country, France, in the Round of Eight.
Curry spoke to USWNT star Megan Rapinoe following the Americans’ 2-1 win over Spain in the Round of 16. Rapinoe scored both of USA’s goals.
“That’s World Cup level grit right there,” Rapinoe told Curry.

Curry, who attended San Diego State University, has spent time covering professional teams in Southern California, from the Angels to the Kings.
She joined FOX Sports in 2011, covering the World University Games, and became a TV host in 2012. She took over the sideline reporter role for Angels and Kings broadcasts in 2014.
FOX Sports 1 elevated her in 2018, allowing her to cover the United States men’s and women’s national teams, along with college football.
Curry has a background in sports and acting, too. From her bio:
From elementary through high school, Curry played sports year-round, playing competitive club soccer as well as varsity soccer for Mira Costa High School. She also studied musical theatre, appearing in school plays and television such as like “Still Standing” and “7th Heaven.”
Curry continued her studies at San Diego State University where she received a BA in Journalism Media Studies with a minor in Marketing. During her tenure at SDSU, she began working behind the scenes for the Joe Lewis Production Company and Fuel TV. Curry also played Soccer at SDSU and helped her team take home a NIRSA National Championship in 2006.
Curry has been a featured aspect of FOX and FOX Sports 1’s World Cup coverage so far this summer and will continue to be one moving forward.
The United States women’s national team, meanwhile, is set to get back in action on Friday afternoon against France in the Round of 8. The game is set to kick off at 3 p.m. E.T.
Curry will be a part of the coverage.
