Shellie Sylvestri anchors and produces KAQY News Now weeknights at 5:30 and 10.
A native of Monroe, Louisiana, Shellie Sylvestri began her journey at KNOE as a communications intern in the summer of 2016. She began reporting full-time at KNOE in August of 2016, starting as a day-side reporter and eventually transitioning to become the evening reporter a few days a week.
In July of 2017, Shellie was given the opportunity to anchor and produce full-time on KNOE's sister-station KAQY, filling the shoes of Chris Brown and Lacey Sharp at 5:30 and 10 pm.
Shellie earned her degree in Digital Media Production at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, graduating in August of 2016.
Being given the opportunity to anchor the news and tell stories based in her hometown is a true honor for Shellie, and she simply wants to do her family and fellow-NELA folks proud!
Outside of work, Shellie likes to spend a lot of time with her family here in Monroe - especially her rescue pup, Nellie. She also enjoys a good meal - Italian or sushi preferred. She can't pass up a good shoe sale or weekend getaway, either.
If you have any questions or would like to give Shellie a shout, feel free to send her an e-mail!
