Connect With Kelly Rippin

Originally hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Kelly is absolutely loving her move to Nashville with everything going on in Music City. She loves all things Pittsburgh-sports related, but enjoys checking out the Titans, Preds and Sounds! She'll even root for them as long as they aren't playing a team from Western PA.

She loves all of the great food and cool neighborhoods that Nashville has to offer, and is always taking suggestions to add to her "to-do" list. Before coming to Nashville, Kelly worked at FOX19 in Cincinnati, and she started her career in broadcast journalism in Clarksburg, West Virginia at WBOY. She's been lucky to work in cities where she is able to get involved in wonderful organizations like the Boys and Girls Club, and different charities that raise money and volunteer time to help youth across the areas.

A proud graduate of Penn State University, and faithful Nittany Lion fan, you can mostly find her with her pup, appropriately named Penny. Her favorite part of Penn State was participating in a 48-hour Dance Marathon that raises millions of dollars for the Four Diamonds Fund, helping families with a child battling pediatric cancer.

Two days of not sitting or sleeping is a sacrifice, but it was all made worth it to see the smiles on each child's face. If you have any recommendations for places to check out, or story ideas, email her at
