Kelsey Fabian joined PHL17 in November 2018 and excited to be back in her home state! Although she is originally from Lancaster County, Kelsey is very familiar with Philadelphia, having earned a journalism degree from Temple University’s Klein College of Media and Communication.
Before making her way back to Philly, Kelsey made her way around the nation. Working at stations in the Midwest, New England and down South, Kelsey has spent quite a few years waking up before the sun, as she has spent all of her time on air as a morning reporter. Over the years she has also taken on other roles such as anchor and producer. She even spent her first year in the real world working for the web team at NBC10 in Philadelphia.
In her spare time she loves to travel, explore new restaurants and spend time with her family and friends. You will often catch Kelsey talking about her love for animals or you may even see her around the city walking her dog, Little Dude!
