Kelly Anne Beile returns to Baton Rouge as a news anchor and reporter for our NBC and FOX affiliate stations. She says she’s elated to be back in a city where the people take great pride in their college sports programs and the politics are as spicy as the food.
The LSU graduate joined our team in April 2019, after spending three years waking up with the community of El Paso, TX on KFOX-TV. While living along the U.S.-Mexico border, Kelly Anne specialized in breaking news and helped tell local stories about people living and working in the bi-national metropolitan area.
She was also well-known for her popular “Do My Job” segments. Kelly Anne worked in more than 75 unique roles, from chili farming in New Mexico to wildlife rehabilitation in west Texas. The community nominated her as “Best Anchor in the Borderland” for City Magazine.
Prior to El Paso, Kelly Anne co-hosted a sports show on WKYT in Lexington, KY where she received her MBA from the University of Kentucky. She was also the main host for a statewide travel series and radio personality. Kelly Anne was honored as a “Rising Star” by the Young Professionals Association and is a former Ms. Kentucky United States.
Kelly Anne will tell you one of her biggest dreams was to be crowned Miss LSU USA and stand midfield in Tiger Stadium. The universe had other plans however, and after placing 1st runner-up two years in a row, she moved west and captured the title of Miss Los Angeles County USA. The opportunity allowed her to appear on CSPAN, ESPN and The Sports Network in Canada. Kelly Anne says she now takes that experience to inspire other young women to trust the timing in their life.
In her spare time, Kelly Anne plays ‘dog mom’ to a rescued terrier mix named Pippa. She is a sustaining member of the Junior League of Baton Rouge and volunteers with the American Cancer Society as a ‘Road to Recovery’ driver. She recently decided to learn the game of golf, but says she continues to find it more relaxing playing a game of pool.
