A high school soccer injury led a TCU alumna to a career in sports broadcast. 

Alexa Landestoy, class of 2019, is a featured host of the NHL’s Washington Capitals pregame and postgame show alongside former Capitals player Alan May.

Landestoy said TCU helped her transition from an athlete to host. She “learned everything from how to run a camera to how to write scripts, produce, direct, interview and host.” 

During her first year as a Horned Frog, Landestoy met former head football coach Gary Patterson. She said Patterson was “instrumental” in her path at TCU. Her connection with Patterson allowed her to cover TCU Football as well as extra events such as TCU’s NFL Pro Day.

His “encouragement and support” of her as well as her dreams, played into creating who she is today, she said. He gave her the tools and access she needed to leave college with a stout demo reel in search of a job that would soon come miles away, Landestoy said. 

Landestoy’s first job out of college was with NBC Sports Washington, which is now Monumental Sports Network. 

She co-hosted the sports talk show, “DC Sports Live,” which she describes as a “multi-platform sports talk and entertainment program.” Five years later, she is a part of the coverage of the Capitals. 

Additionally, Landestoy has covered the NHL through NHL Network’s “On the Fly” and “Stanley Cup Live.”

Landestoy said she is grateful for the work of trailblazers before her who “have made being a woman in sports a normal occurrence.”

She said she felt supported and comfortable from the beginning as both a woman in sports and a female sports journalist.

Landestoy looks forward to continuing to talk sports as she gears up for another season with the Washington Capitals.
