Reporter Kelly Werthmann is thrilled to be a part of the CBS4 news team! Having spent most of her young life in Colorado Springs, she is happy to be reporting back “home” in beautiful Colorado. Viewers can watch her on the CBS4 Morning News and CBS4 Noon News on weekdays.
Kelly began her broadcast journalism career as a newscast assistant at KTVQ-TV in Billings, Montana where she worked evenings while earning her mass communication degree at Montana State University. It was at this CBS station that she learned the “ins and outs” of the broadcast news industry and quickly developed a passion for news. Following graduation, she became the associate morning producer and reporter for Montana This Morning, with her own web and technology segment called “What’s the Buzz.”
A year later, Kelly joined KXRM-TV in Colorado Springs as a general assignment reporter and multimedia journalist. She covered a variety of stories, including breaking news, “Tebowmania,” and the 2011 U.S. Women’s Open.
Though Kelly was born in Montana, the Air Academy High School grad considers Colorado Springs home. She is an “Army Brat” and has lived all over the country, including Texas, Indiana, Maryland and Hawaii. Despite the tedious pain of packing, Kelly loves to travel. Italy is by far her favorite destination, and she’s hoping for another adventure to Europe soon.
A few of Kelly’s other hobbies include reading, cooking, hiking (“What better place than Colorado?!”) and playing any sport outside, especially volleyball.
