By Kevin Eck 

Kelly O’Connell will join Minneapolis-St. Paul Fox-owned station KMSP as weekday morning anchor.

Starting October 5, O’Connell will anchor alongside Dawn Stevens for the 4:30 to 6 a.m. news and Alix Kendall and Keith Marter for The Buzz at 9 a.m.

O’Connell, a St. Paul native, last worked as a morning anchor at KCPQ in Seattle. Before that, she was at KGAN in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She’s also worked at WRBL in Columbus, Ga.


“I am thrilled to be joining a news organization that really focuses on what viewers want,” said O’Connell. “I am so excited to be back home and cannot wait to help the people of the Twin Cities start their day!”
