From the opioid crisis to local farmers' struggles to ongoing developments, Kelly has covered a wide range of topics as a multimedia reporter. She's worked as the city hall reporter for The Norwalk Hour and an enterprise and education reporter for the Burlington County Times. She currently serves as a writer and editor at Fordham University and a freelance journalist.
Kelly believes the role of local and regional journalists is to show how government impacts communities and bring to light issues in those areas that need to be brought front and center. She's covered everything from the addiction crisis to budgets to development to school services. She is extremely proud of a collaborative, year-long project that highlighted the impact of the opioid crisis in South Jersey and Pennsylvania called State of Emergency.
She got her start in journalism in New York City at Fordham University. Kelly worked in the sports department for WFUV, a NPR-affiliate, and covered the local Fordham teams, the Jets, the Rangers and other events, such as the Belmont Stakes. Kelly also served as the editor-in-chief of her college paper, The Fordham Ram, while also interning and working at CBS Sports Radio and WFAN.
