Kelsey Thomas joined News 3 as a reporter in September 2013. Kelsey has followed her passion for story telling all over the west coast.
She was raised in Orange County, California and attended the University of San Diego where she graduated with a degree in Communications. Two days after graduation, she took a job as a news writer at KUSI-TV in San Diego.
She also spent time working as a news writer at KDOC-TV in Orange County before heading to Montana to pursue her dreams of becoming a reporter.
Kelsey delivered the news to viewers in Big Sky Country as an anchor and reporter at KFBB-TV in Great Falls, which is about 100 miles from the Canadian border. But Kelsey prefers the heat over snow any day so after two years in Montana, she accepted a job in Bakersfield, California.
Kelsey was an anchor and reporter for KGET-TV. There, she covered the death of an elderly woman after a nurse refused to perform CPR on her. Her story led to a new law prohibiting companies from adopting policies that ban employees from performing CPR . Kelsey's investigation into a deadly house fire also resulted in changes to a smoke alarm law in California.
If Kelsey could have it her way, there would be sunshine year-round. So when News 3 came calling, she packed her bags and moved to sunny Las Vegas.
Kelsey is happy to call Las Vegas her new home. When she's not working, she loves spending time with her husband and their two pugs, Gus and Bambina. In her spare time, Kelsey enjoys cycling and attempting to become as good a cook as her mother.
