Kelly K. has been one half of the Morning Show on 99/7 ‘DJX for the last 14 of her 20 years in radio ("Ben Davis and Kelly K. Show", formerly “The Peter B. and Kelly K, Show”). A Purdue University grad, she moved here to work at MIX102 radio in August 1996. She went on to serve stints at WLRS, Lite106.9, B96, and HOT104 before landing at WDJX. You catch her on TV a lot, having served as a feature/guest reporter for WHAS 11 and WAVE 3 TV, host on "Shopping Kentuckiana" and “Shop! Shop!”, host of "Kentuckiana Wedding Planner" and co-host "Secrets of Louisville Chefs" with Kevin Harned on CW Louisville. Kelly was also a national finalist in July 2010 to guest host on “Live with Regis and Kelly” thanks to a fan nomination and listener votes!
She has an AWRT On Air Personality of the Year award, and is consistently named in the top three Favorite Radio Personalities on the annual Louisville Magazine’s Best of Louisville and Leo Reader’s Choice awards year after year. Kelly also had the honor of giving the commencement address this past April at Sullivan College of Technology and Design. In her spare time, she appears at numerous charitable events throughout the year and talks to classrooms about reading and literacy.
Her husband, Michael, popped the question live on-air in February 2006, and they married that October. They are parents to son, Jacob and daughter, Ava.
