  • I worked as a producer in the Special Projects Unit at WSB-TV in Atlanta for 8 years, working on numerous daily and ratings-period specials, making a lot of them into half-hour prime time specials. In 2016, I moved back home to Western PA to be the Executive Producer of Special Projects at WPXI. I am over investigations, our WPXI Now streaming channel, sports and special events like Olympics & Elections. @WPXIKellloB
