Kelly Swoope joined the WMAR-2 News team in July 2003. Kelly anchors WMAR-2 News at 5, 6 and 11 and does a weekly story called "Cutting through the Chaos" to help busy moms sort through all that is going on.

In addition to volunteer work with the Baltimore City Health Department, Komen Maryland and Casey Cares, Kelly is active in her sorority, Delta Sigma Theta and Jack and Jill Baltimore chapter.

Before coming to Charm City Kelly worked for WFTS, the Scripps station in Tampa. She has spent the majority of her career working for Scripps.  Kelly's first job out of school was at the Scripps station in Cincinnati.  At WCPO she worked the Assignment Desk, and as an Associate Producer. From Cincinnati, she landed her first reporting job in Milwaukee at WITI.  She worked there for six years, and then it was off to sunny Florida. 

She continues to cover some crazy news stories, but Kelly's oddest job came well before her career, working as a popcorn girl at a movie theater in high school.
