Anchor/reporter Kaley O’Kelley joined CBS 11 News in January 2015. She is a six-time Emmy-Award winning journalist and a self-professed weather fanatic.

Kaley graduated from Pepperdine University, but her broadcasting career began even earlier. While she was still in high school, she hosted a Los Angeles-based television talk show. That experience eventually lead Kaley to KYMA in Yuma to anchor the morning news and forecast the weather. It’s also where she won an Associated Press award for investigative journalism. Kaley went on to work at KEYT (ABC) Santa Barbara, XETV (FOX) San Diego, as well as KTVK and KNXV in Phoenix, where she was a reporter and a news and weather anchor. She also co-hosted “The Emmitt Zone” with former Dallas Cowboys running back and NFL Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith.

Kaley has also worked regularly on The Weather Channel and Good Morning America Weekend, where she filled in forecasting weather for nearly five years.

Kaley is originally from East Wenatchee, Washington. She is a proud member of the Native American Journalists Association, The American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association. On weekends, you’ll find her riding bikes and exploring places outdoors with her husband and their two children. She also enjoys waterskiing, camping, reading, cooking, attending concerts, and in the fall, watching football!
