Kelly Sullivan joined Boston 25 News in June 2017. As a native of Auburn, MA, it has always been her dream to work in the television market she grew up watching.
Prior to working in Boston, Kelly was an evening anchor and reporter at WPRI in Providence, RI. There, she had the opportunity to cover several big stories, from President Trump on the campaign trail, to traveling to Cleveland to cover Tom Brady's return from his suspension, and then to Houston to report on the Patriot's Super Bowl win.
Before Providence, Kelly was also an anchor and reporter at WBBH in sunny Fort Myers, FL. She also worked at NewsChannel 8 in Washington, D.C. where she reported along the parade route following President Barack Obama's first inauguration. Kelly started her career at WHSV in Harrisonburg, VA where she covered the graduation at Virginia Tech just months after the tragic shootings.
Kelly graduated in 2006 from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, with a major in Broadcast Journalism and minors in Political Science and History.
When Kelly isn't working, she enjoys running, watching sports, and going to Patriots/Red Sox/Celtics/Bruins games with her husband.
The MBTA will be running some of its subway lines at reduced-service weekend levels every day through the summer as it tries to address a staffing shortage that federal monitors said is a safety risk, and the agency launched a “hiring blitz” this week to staff up as quickly as possible.
