She graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 2010 with this degree. Kelly was an enthusiastic participant in the non-profit Penn Dance Marathon throughout her time in college.


When Kelly started anchoring for the Emmy Award-winning Penn State University news station Centre County Report throughout her studies, she began her on-camera reporting career. She joined WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the middle of 2007, where she finished “one portion” of her internship.

She worked as an intern in New York City from April to December 2008 under the guidance of anchor and CBS Evening News cover girl Katie Couric. In the middle of 2009, she interned at MSNBC.

Even though her vital numbers are still unknown, Rippin has a real hourglass figure and a thin, toned frame. It is undeniable that all these “perks” have contributed to her success as a prominent TV anchor and reporter, in addition to her long chocolate hair and brown eyes, which give her a very attractive image.
