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.

If you have a story idea, Shellye would love to hear it! Feel free to email her at Sleggett@kktv.com or follow her on twitter @ShellyeL_TV and like her on Facebook at Shellye Leggett TV.

CU had won two in a row and four of its last five, and had a chance to hold onto at least a tie for fourth in the conference standings. But the Huskies provided their version of separation, dominating the Buffs on the boards and walking away from the Coors Events Center with a 72-62 win.
