Kelli O’Hara, Salt Lake City’s ‘Best Tough Reporter,’ Moves to Durham’s WTVD

Kelli O’Hara, who was recently named Salt Lake City’s “Best Tough Reporter,” is moving across the country to join WTVD, an ABC O&O serving the Durham-Raleigh-Fayetteville market.

WTVD news director Rob Elmore confirmed the move to TVSpy this morning. O’Hara will begin work with the station next week as a general assignment and investigative reporter.

O’Hara has experience covering the region. Before joining Salt Lake City ABC-affiliate KTVX, O’Hara worked at stations in Roanoke, VA and Wilmington, NC, eventually landing a general assignment/investigative reporter job at Richmond’s WTVR.

In naming her the city’s “Best Tough Reporter,” Salt Lake City Weekly said that O’Hara “has the kind of no-fluff grit and gravitas that make even the occasional nonstory, like buying spice in a low-rent convenience store, pop.”
