Born in Seattle and raised nearby. YMCA basketball and swim team at the neighborhood pool growing up. Friends invited me to Miracle Ranch (CRISTA) Camp in Jr High. I met Jesus there.
Gave radio a try in college and never looked back. Early jobs in Spokane and Portland before coming to work at CRISTA Media in 1993(!!!!).
My wife and I are raising two “nearly-twin” daughters, who are 18 months apart.
I still like to shoot baskets at the Y; I enjoy cappuccinos, fish and chips, barbeques, car shows, family time at home and anywhere else, the smell of a campfire on a saltwater beach, views of our epic mountain ranges, and working in the yard.
Ana Kelly has worked for more than 20 years in a variety of radio formats including news, talk radio, rock and adult contemporary. She is excited to share her mornings with you on SPIRIT 105.3.
Ana Kelly is a Pacific Northwest native who holds her family close. Patriotism and military service are something that she holds near and dear to her heart as her father, uncle and husband have all served. She loves baking cookies, cupcakes and her famous banana bread with her daughters Lucy and Kennedy. She is active and enjoys boot camp, snowboarding and walking with the family pug, “Geno” around Green Lake. She also loves football, especially when the Cougs win! She is a WSU Graduate.
SPIRIT 105.3 listeners connect with Ana and her down-to-earth, everyday stories. Like this one: “If you had told me 6 years ago that this is what my life would be: married, two kids and working at a Christian radio station I would have said huh? Who are you talking about? It reminds of that line from Forest Gump ‘life is like a box of chocolates….ya never know what you’re going to get.’ I had almost given up hope of getting married and having kids but then I met my husband in an unlikely place – match dot com. I NEVER in million years thought that you could find love on the internet. Clearly I was wrong. We married within a year and had two beautiful daughters shortly after. It has been an incredible blessing and I know God had a hand in it. I’m what you would call a new Christian. I’ve always believed in God but never knew what it meant to have a relationship with him. As I began slowly handing my life over to Christ the idea of a career at SPIRIT 105.3 blossomed. At the time, I thought nah, “I’m not Christian enough yet, I’m still working through my past sins, and they won’t want someone like me.” But God wanted someone like me! He had been leading me to this very place all along. So, if life is like a box of chocolates I believe God is the chocolatier. He knows exactly what’s in that box. For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
