Shellye comes from Las Vegas, Nevada aka Sin City (born and raised) and is excited to join the KKTV 11 News This Morning team as a producer and a reporter.
Shellye joined the morning team in May 2016. She comes to Colorado Springs after working as a reporter at WSJV FOX 28 in South Bend, IN. While in Northern Indiana, Shellye reported on several hard-hitting stories including the murder of a well-known Army reservist, the beginning of a multi-city smoking ban, and she interviewed Vice President Mike Pence when he was governor of Indiana about the possible revamp of the controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).
Shellye got her start in the professional journalism business in Bozeman at KTVM NBC Montana. She spent one year there as a one-man band reporter.
Shellye graduated with a Master’s of Arts in journalism from DePaul University, where she reported and anchored for the student-run weekly newscast “Good Day DePaul.” She also interned for the Chicago morning show WCIU “You and Me This Morning.”
Before that she earned her Bachelor of Arts in communication studies at North Park University also in Chicago, IL. Shellye earned several academic and athletic honors as part of the Lady Vikings Softball and Track and Field teams.
When she’s not bringing you the local news bright and early, you can find her getting a great kick boxing workout in or maybe even exploring some greats eats here in town.
