Alizé – who was named after the tradewinds that blow across the Caribbean – fell in love with the beaches of Eastern North Carolina when she moved here in 2009.
Alizé is originally from Paris, France but started her broadcasting career in a place that is not known for their beaches or their French speaking: Montana. She made her way down the jet stream to New Bern, North Carolina. While she left North Carolina for a year to work in Norfolk Virginia, she couldn't stay away any longer and quickly made her way back home.
Some of the most memorable stories she has covered during her time here include jumping into the heart of a rip current, skydiving and learning to kite surf in the Outer Banks.
When she is not busy hunting down an interview or reporting in hurricanes and tornadoes, Alizé is able to experience the many paradises of Eastern North Carolina. With her fiancé and her wonderful dog, Ava, she enjoys sailing in Oriental, fishing at Atlantic Beach and kite surfing at The Point in Emerald Isle, along Carrot Island, and in the shallows of the Outer Banks.
