About

Kelli Zink serves as host for CelebTV.com, covering the day’s biggest celebrity stories, from Britney Spears to Heath Ledger. Kelli is a regular contributor to the top entertainment news shows in the country, including CNN Headline News’ Nancy Grace, CNN’s ShowBiz Tonight, MSNBC and Fox News. She is a weekly guest on “The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet” where she talks about hot topics spanning from politics to pop culture.  She is also a contributer for “Michigan Avenue Magazine”. Prior to joining CelebTV.com, Kelli worked in  production for the NFL Network and was the winning contestant on the ESPN reality program “Beg, Borrow & Deal.”

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.

    Just saw you (covering the Mel Gibson trial)…very impressive! You remind me of someone I grew up with in Buffalo, NY. I’m a Podiatrist living in Arlington, Virginia. I’d love to offer you a free foot exam at the Arlington Podiatry Center! I don’t normally do the computer much but..hey thought I’d take a wild shot at this! Love to meet you. Good luck!! ED

    Would like to comment after seeing you <kelli, on MSNBC. You were discussing problems you have reading comments from atheists and agnostics. You could really do a service (as a christian) by explaining the anger of non-believers to the other christians, so please allow me to explain. Non-believers are angry inside. Angry at their parents for forcing them to attend religious schools and go to churches. Angry that we must constantly be made to feel we are the oddball outsiders. How does that happen? At countless family dinners, where we are ASKED TO PRAY! Think about it. Why can't a person who knows me and loves me, honor me by saying "Before we eat lets take a moment to be thankful in silence.". That's not how it goes. It's: god this god that god god. In numerous parts of American life, a country that allows religious freedon, we are disregarded. You're right, we get angry, but it's not been noted by you, how many times after a catastrophy WE must see numerous quotes by people on TV about god's positive involvement in the events. By our logic, that thinking is askew. Sorry, you are right. We are angry, and no one wants to know why or change their consideration of us. Do you say "merry christmas" to your jewish friends every year?

    • wrong girl. I spoke on Britney Spears on MSNBC. And no, I say “Happy Holidays” for the record- to all my friends regardless of religion.

  6. yes!
