Chelsey started as a fill-in traffic reporter in July of 2013. Chelsey has taken on the role of presenting the feature news, including stories from upcoming events to exclusive looks inside the Arizona Cardinals' stadium.
Chelsey thoroughly enjoys being a Jill-of-all-trades. When she's not at CBS 5 News, she is working for the Arizona Cardinals, who she is a die-hard fan for. She works in their broadcast and media department during the day as talent, while also shooting and editing pieces on the official Cardinals website. Chelsey has also been the host for the annual Big Red Rib and Music Festival twice, drawing thousands of fans each year. In addition, she's been an Arizona Cardinals cheerleader for the past five years, and captain for two. Chelsey has developed the cheerleading brand as a team choreographer, and an ambassador for tours across the nation and overseas. She also coordinates and hosts the Jr. Cheer weekend for hundreds of little girls across the valley. Chelsey is thrilled to wear the Pro Bowl title for 2014.
Chelsey believes everything happens for a reason and that her accelerated experience in newsrooms across her home state got her to where she is today. She interned at KNXV, and then moved over to the print side as a breaking news reporter for Gannett. She transferred back over to broadcast as a producer at KPNX. Before graduating, she also helped launch and co-anchor a sports talk show at ASU and anchored the weather and reported for the award-winning NewsWatch program airing on PBS.
From the bottom of her heart, Chelsey would like to thank everyone and every experience that brought her to the CBS 5 News family. She hopes to inspire all dreamers that nothing is impossible.
