Kelly Jackson is an Emmy-nominated journalist and weekend morning anchor at 5 On Your Side in St. Louis, Missouri.

The weekends are a great time for people to de-stress from the week and enjoy themselves. And that is Kelly's goal when it comes to viewers watching the weekend morning edition of Today in St. Louis. She anchors the shows at 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and often fills in during the week.

Kelly is originally from Quincy, Illinois and started at 5 On Your Side in 1998. She has a love affair with St. Louis and St. Louisans. She did take a short break from her adopted hometown and moved to California to anchor mornings at one of 5 On Your Side's sister stations in Sacramento, but St. Louis kept calling her name. When she's not working the weekends, you'll find her advocating for pets. She loves hanging out with friends, volunteering, traveling and discovering all the "fabulosity" of St. Louis with her pooch, LaRue.
