Hi! I’m Kelly! I have been part of the team since 2008 and have had a lot of fun in that time. Prior to that, I worked for a small town radio station and had a just for fun college radio show with friends. I’m a Faribault High School grad and hold a bachelors degree from the University of Minnesota Morris. When I’m not working, I love spending time with family and friends, walking my dog, checking out great local events, spending time outdoors, cheering for the Twins, and taking in as much live music as I can. Thanks for listening!
