FOX 9 has named Kelcey Carlson as the new co-anchor of FOX 9 News at 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. She will join Jeff Passolt to anchor the two newscasts.
Carlson comes to the Twin Cities from WRAL-TV in Raleigh, North Carolina. She was the main morning anchor and an investigative reporter.
FOX 9 says that Carlson has Midwest roots, as she grew up in Indiana and graduated from Indiana University.
Carlson and her husband Dave have two boys Charlie and Kellen, and a dog.
"This opportunity is like winning the jackpot," she said. I have fond memories of my summer vacations in the Midwest and I'm so excited to move back here with my family and be a part of the talented FOX 9 news team."
FOX 9 reports that Carlson will be on the air in February.
