Alicia Richards co-anchors abc27's 6:00 & 11:00 p.m. newscasts. Alicia sharpened her communications skills early on as a member of her high school's championship speech team. An admitted news junkie, she then went on to earn a degree in journalism from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.

Alicia is most grateful that life has presented her with enormous opportunity. For abc27, she traveled to Kosovo to report on the Pennsylvania National Guard's peace-keeping efforts. She accompanied heart specialists from Penn State Hershey Medical Center on a life-saving medical mission to Ecuador. Alicia was there as Central Pennsylvanians poured into Washington for the Ronald Reagan Memorial. She also covered the Republican National Convention in Philadelphia and interviewed Hillary Clinton in Harrisburg.

Alicia has become well known for her efforts on behalf of breast cancer awareness. Her Buddy Check 27 series won two Pennsylvania Association of Broadcaster awards and she and her mother Karen are featured in public service announcements promoting the importance of early detection. In addition, Alicia was awarded a first place Associated Press award for "Lori's Story," a moving ten-part series on a local woman's determined battle against breast cancer.

Alicia takes great pride in her extensive involvement with the Central Pennsylvania community. In addition to regular speaking engagements, she serves on the Essence of Humanity Board.

Travel is one of her primary interests. With her family, she has gone on safari in Africa and has been to Egypt, Russia, Argentina and throughout Europe. Alicia has an English Cocker Spaniel named Lily.
