MEET OUR EMCEES
At just 26 years old, LSU grad Kelsey Wingert is making a name for herself as a reporter and host for FOX Sports South and FOX Sports Southeast in Atlanta. Wingert’s primary role is covering the Atlanta Braves as a field reporter. She works about 150 of the Braves 162 game season. You’ll also find her on the job for Atlantic Coast Conference college football games and doing in-studio cut-ins during NBA and NHL broadcasts.
“I always tell people, when you apply, market size doesn’t matter, just get that first job. In order to get better you have to be on-air. And when you’re in those small markets … you get on air every single day.” Wingert wasn’t looking for a job while working at KALB-TV in Alexandria, LA, but jumped at the chance to interview for the Fox Sports position after learning it was open.
A diehard sports fan, Kelsey, has been interested in sports broadcasting since middle school. Originally from Texas, she graduated from LSU in 2014 with a minor in Sports Studies and a major in Broadcast Journalism.

Tribble is a big believer in making people feel good about being themselves in their own skin.
