After spending more than a decade in a successful public relations career, Kelly Anne Beile is happy to be in west Texas, bringing those in the Borderland the latest news during the KFOX14 morning broadcast from 5-9 a.m. weekdays. Having grown up in Lexington, Kentucky, being a part of the only city in Texas to claim an NCAA national championship in men’s basketball makes El Paso feel like home, she says.
Since her first day with KFOX14 in March of 2016, Kelly Anne has covered unforgettable national tragedies: the Pulse nightclub shooting, the congressional baseball shooting, Hurricane Harvey, the Las Vegas mass shooting and the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
She’s also had the privilege of hosting her own segment, “Do My Job,” which has allowed her to share some of the unique stories behind Borderland professions. She says some of the most memorable include working with the El Paso Children’s Hospital, Price’s Creameries, Sun Bowl Association, Charcoaler, Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife, New Mexico State University Athletics, El Paso Chihuahuas and El Paso Zoo.
Kelly Anne has been recognized by the Young Professionals Association and Women Leading Kentucky. She was also nominated by the El Paso community for Best Anchor in the Borderland in in The City Magazine.
A graduate of the University of Kentucky with a masters degree in business administration and of Louisiana State University with a bachelor of arts degree, she also spent time studying real estate development in Los Angeles and theater at the University of London in England.
Giving back to the community is a priority of hers. While in El Paso, Kelly Anne has served as emcee for a variety of events, including the Down Syndrome Coalition for El Paso Buddy Walk, El Paso Diabetes Association, Greater El Paso Football Showcase, El Paso Film Commission, Miss El Paso and Miss New Mexico USA. When not in the studio, you can find Kelly Anne playing “dog mom” to her rescued Chihuahua-Jack Russell terrier, Pippa.
