Shelby Rose is a General Assignment Reporter at KATV and joined the team in August 2018.
Shelby is originally from Texas and grew up in Sugar Land, a southwestern suburb of Houston. While attending the University of Texas at San Antonio, she interned at Houston’s Fox affiliate, KRIV. There, Shelby knew she had a knack for reporting the news. She graduated from UTSA in the spring of 2016 with a B.A. in Digital Communication.
Prior to joining KATV, Shelby worked for KXMB, the CBS affiliate in Bismarck, North Dakota. During her time in North Dakota, she reported on the conflicts surrounding the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Shelby was in the middle of riots and intense confrontations with law enforcement, much of her footage and interviews appearing on national news daily.
Although Shelby started to grow accustomed to North Dakota winters, she is thrilled to be back in the South. In her off-time, Shelby enjoys the outdoors, whether that be hiking, camping or the occasional hunt. She is also a huge Houston sports fan. You’ll often hear Shelby brag about her 2017 World Series Champs, the Houston Astros.
