The weekends are a great time for people to de-stress from the week and enjoy themselves.  That is precisely Kelly's goal when it comes to viewers watching the weekend morning edition of Today in St. Louis along with her co-hort, Chester Lampkin.  People often stop Kelly and ask her if she just lives at the station on the weekends.  She actually wouldn’t mind if there was an especially built suite for her, but no, she does get a break from anchoring all the shows on Saturday, followed by Today in St. Louis on Sunday morning.

Kelly, an Emmy nominated journalist, started at KSDK in 1998, and has a love affair with St. Louis and St. Louisans.  She did take a short break from her adopted hometown and moved to California to anchor mornings at one of KSDK’s sister stations in Sacramento, but St. Louis kept calling her name.  When she's not working the weekends, you'll find her advocating for pets during the week.  She loves hanging out with friends, volunteering, traveling and discovering all the fabulosity of St. Louis with her pooch, LaRue.

If you have a story idea, or have a creative guest idea for the weekend show, give her a shout out.
