About MoCo Show


My name is Alex Tsironis. I was born in Silver Spring, spent the first 5 years of my life in Rockville, and moved to Gaithersburg in 1987...the city I have called home ever since. I am a Watkins Mill High School and University of Maryland graduate and I've been a teacher in MCPS for over a decade. As you can tell, I take pride in the area I come from.

I want The MoCoShow to be the fastest, easiest, and most fun way to get your Montgomery County information.

​In 2010, I started the website MoCoSnow. MoCoSnow is a hub of winter weather information that puts everything you need in one place and provides forecasts as well as predictions for school closings and delays.

After MoCoSnow grew in popularity, I felt the need to expand. I wanted to create a place where I can share my experiences within Montgomery County and discuss them with other residents. That's when The MoCoShow was born.

The name came about because The MoCoShow started as a podcast. Now it is entirely based on the internet and social media. On The MoCoShow website, Facebook page, and Instagram/Twitter accounts you will see a wide variety of content that is primarily MoCo based, but sometimes goes beyond that. You'll see vintage photos, hidden gems, cool places to eat, things to do, and the latest news about the county we all love.
