Anchor/Multimedia Journalist

Kelsey Leyrer is an Emmy and Associated Press award winning journalist who anchors from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m on CW Knoxville Monday through Friday. She also reports for WVLT News. Kelsey joined the team in September of 2014.

A proud Vol fan, Kelsey is happy to once again call Knoxville home! She was born and raised just outside of Nashville, but moved east for college where she graduated from the University of Tennessee.

She moved even further east for her first job in Kingsport, TN, as a reporter for WKPT.

Watching football (Go Vols!), going on long runs, and trying not to get bitten by her cat (Bob Costas--yes, that's his name) are a few of her favorite things.

Kelsey is always looking for a great story and would love to tell yours - just send her an email at
