That’s my professional bio above. Below is my life as told by me.
Kelli Zink grew up with a microphone in her hand, always knowing she wanted to be a reporter which saved her parents thousands of dollars as she graduated college in 4 years at the esteemed Michigan State University .
From knocking on the door of a Fox Sports production truck after a basketball game in her cheerleader uniform to winning an ESPN reality show, she did whatever it took to get her foot in the television door.
By the age of 22 she had been a sports anchor in two markets and decided it was time to move west. She drove her 1996 Ford to LA and helped launch the NFL Network- even creating the network’s original slogan; “Where Football Season Never Ends”.
After 3 wonderful years of working behind the scenes in sports she came back to the Midwest to launch CelebTV.com.
It was there she realized her true passion was on camera so she shed some weight, went blonde and worked her butt off to become the host.
When not interviewing celebs, Kelli enjoys eating vegan, working out at 5 am with her trainer, watching and reading as much news as her brain can absorb, writing, drinking champagne and dancing like Elaine from “Seinfeld”.
She started this blog because she thinks writing would be a pretty kick ass profession once she is “too old” for TV.
