Kianga Kelley joined the KSN News team in June of 2013. She comes to KSN from WCTI12 in New Bern, NC where she reported the 5, 3:30, 6, 10 pm and 11 p.m. newscasts.

Kianga grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana and earned a degree in Broadcast Journalism at Grambling State University. While at Grambling, she honed her skills and gained invaluable experience as an anchor/VJ for GSU-TV, a radio personality for 91.5 KGRM, and a Grambling Sports Network sideline reporter during football season.

Immediately after graduation, her accomplishments rewarded her the opportunity to apply her talents as a television reporter at KAUZ in Wichita Falls, Texas. There, Kianga created a series entitled “Texoma’s Hidden Treasures”. Two years later she moved her talents to Baton Rouge, Louisiana as a reporter for WVLA/WGMB Channel 33.

In 2009, Kianga took a quick break from television by returning to her alma mater to assist in training college students in both radio and television as operations manager for KGRM-FM radio and Assistant TV Director to GSU-TV.

Community involvement is important to Kianga. In North Carolina she was committed to serving with youth organizations and a local food bank with her church. She also found time to take an active role in local theatre and stared in the play, “Dream Girls,” in the roll of Deana.

Kianga is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists. She has done voice-overs for TV/radio commercials. She is a fashion fanatic who enjoys the theatre, volunteering, traveling, and singing all genre of music. However, don’t let the girly appearance fool you; growing up with two older brothers, Kianga had no choice but to be a tomboy at heart.

Kianga is excited to call Kansas home and if you have story idea that you want told, email her at Kianga.Kelley@ksn.com.
