Shelby was the producer for the 11 a.m. COVID-focused show and has produced evening shows. Currently she works as a multimedia journalist, camera operator and assistant producer for the Evening News Broadcasts. A graduate of the University of Washington, Shelby worked for the campus newspaper The Daily. While there she worked as a photojournalist and a podcast host, primarily focused on sports.
