Shelby Trahan joined KOLD in November 2020. Before making her way to Arizona, Shelby worked at KOLD’s sister station KPLC 7 News in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
During her time in Louisiana, Shelby gained experience as a live-shot reporter, producer, and a morning anchor. She comes to Arizona as a Louisiana Broadcast Association Award winning journalist for her segment ‘Shelby on the Geaux,’ a series that highlighted exciting places to visit around the Texas-Louisiana region.
Shelby also covered a variety of events including a presidential rally, and Hurricanes Delta and Laura, one of the strongest hurricanes to make landfall in Louisiana in more than 100 years.
Before moving to the bayou state, the native Houstonian graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Journalism News in December 2017. During her time at UNT, she helped volunteer at North Texas Television, the 26-time Emmy Award-winning student-run news station.
Shelby is excited to begin a new journey in Tucson and looks forward to getting to know the community and exploring the city. In her free time, you can find her enjoying the watered areas of the desert, or binge watching a good TV dramas, especially anything written by Shonda Rhimes.
