As you probably already know, I’m the entertainment reporter for B96! You can hear me every weekday morning on the J Show reporting on the latest celebrity gossip. At 7:15 am, I also take on listeners in a pop culture quiz called the Showbiz Shelly Smackdown.
Growing up in Chicago around the North Shore area, I would listen to B96 while driving to school at New Trier High School every day. I later graduated from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism with a degree in broadcasting. It is at Northwestern where I really discovered my passion for entertainment news as I was head of the Arts and Entertainment division of Northwestern’s television station, the Northwestern News Network. My sophomore year in college I started as an intern in the promotions department at B96 and worked my way up to the morning show. During my time as an entertainment reporter at the radio station, I have had the opportunity to meet many celebrities ranging from David Beckham to Mariah Carey, to Fergie to Michael Jordan. I often travel to Los Angeles to cover movie premieres, the American Music Awards, the Grammys and lots more.
I also contribute my entertainment scoops regularly to Windy City Live and CBS to name a few.
When I’m not covering the entertainment beat, you can probably find me reading 50 Shades of Grey, watching some of my favorite tv shows which include The Bachelor, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Empire, Top Chef, Better Caul Saul, Project Runway and many, many more or working out at the gym.
