Kelly Jackson is an Emmy-nominated journalist and 5 p.m. co-anchor at 5 On Your Side in St. Louis, Missouri.
In fall 2021, Kelly became Mike Bush's co-anchor at 5 p.m., alongside Chief Meteorologist Scott Connell, and Sports Director Frank Cusumano. She moved to the role after spending more than 10 years anchoring the weekend morning edition of Today in St. Louis.
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, 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.
