“A 43-year veteran of the NYPD, Commissioner Kelly’s vast knowledge will provide our viewers with an even deeper understanding of national security and intelligence issues at home and overseas. It is an honor and privilege to have him on our team,” Sherwood, the president of ABC News, wrote in a note to staff.
Kelly served as police commissioner from 1992-94 under Mayor David Dinkins and from 2002-13 under Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Kelly is the first person to serve two non-consecutive tenures as police commissioner.
