Kelly Andersen, a native Marylander, is thrilled to be back home reporting in her home state after spending six years on the west side of the country.
Before coming to FOX Baltimore, Kelly worked at KVAL News, our sister station in Eugene, Oregon. During her two years there, she served as an anchor, reporter, and weathercaster.
Kelly reported on everything from the front lines of wildfires, to the legalization of marijuana. She conducted an in-depth investigation of Oregon’s rape kit backlog, uncovering more than 2,000 rape kits which went untested.
On October 1st, 2015, Kelly was the first reporter from her station to go live from the massacre at Umpqua Community College. She and her team later won a regional Emmy for their coverage.
Kelly began her broadcast career in college as a freelance red carpet reporter. She had the pleasure of interviewing numerous Hollywood favorites such as Brad Pitt, Matthew McConaughey, 50 Cent, and Oprah Winfrey. Yep, they really are that good-looking in person.
A proud Sun Devil, Kelly studied her craft at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. She majored in Broadcast Journalism and minored in Anthropology. She was nominated for a regional student Emmy alongside two of her peers, and she anchored Cronkite Newswatch in both English and Spanish.
In her spare time, Kelly plays piano (mediocrely), participates in improv comedy groups, and enjoys exploring the outdoors.
