Shelby joined the KOCO 5 First Alert weather team in November 2014. She is the weekend morning meteorologist for KOCO. She is a native Oklahoman who grew up wanting nothing more than to be a meteorologist.
From a very young age Shelby was fascinated by storms. It began with fear but grew into a passion for learning about the weather. As a young girl when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up it was a simple answer, the next Gary England. That answer still hasn’t changed.
After graduating from Velma-Alma High School, Shelby went on to pursue her dream at one of the finest meteorology schools in the world, the University of Oklahoma. There she earned her B.S. in Meteorology.
She spent her time in college studying weather and also studying the television business. Shelby completed internships in both Oklahoma City under Gary England and Nashville, Tennessee.
She also spent time in New York City at Good Morning America learning from ABC Meteorologist Ginger Zee.
Shelby began her broadcast career at KFSM, the CBS affiliate in Fort Smith, Arkansas, as the weekend morning meteorologist. The chance to come home to Oklahoma City was a dream come true for Shelby. She is very excited to keep everyone up-to-date with the latest First Alert forecast.
