On this episode of the future award-winning Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran has a chat with WIVB-TV morning co-anchor Kelsey Anderson about a variety of topics spanning her life and career.

Kelsey was born and raised in Western New York and attended Orchard Park high school.  She discusses growing up wanting to be in the TV business but also being introverted and how it took time to begin to find her own voice. She attended Ithaca college in preparation for a career that would ultimately lead her back to Buffalo.

But not before a lengthy stint in Boise, Idaho. Kelsey spent four and a half years working and living in Boise and discusses some of the similarities and differences with Western New York.  In the spring of 2018 Kelsey took a job at WIVB and returned home. She talks about that process and how it wasn’t quite the easy decision most imagine it was.

They also spend time talking about her job ritual and sleeping schedule that comes with being a morning anchor, working through challenging times during Covid-19, the significance of good relationships at the TV station, her stance on social media, why she loves Buffalo so much and a few of her favorite wing and pizza joints.

They wrap with the traditional Fun Fact Finale and we learn plenty of fun facts about Kelsey, including her favorite city she’s visited, her worst habit, what game show she could dominate, her signature karaoke song and much more.

After that Patrick does a segment of “Pat’s Picks” where he picks the winners of this week’s upcoming NFL games against the point spread.  He went 9-5-1 in Week one and this will be a regular segment on Friday’s for the remainder of the NFL regular season.
