Haylee Kennedy joined WKRG News 5 as a Multimedia Journalist in June 2023, covering Mobile and Washington County. Growing up in a military family, she developed a passion for storytelling. In high school she realized that reporting was her dream career. Now, she looks forward to meeting the people of the Gulf Coast and sharing their stories.
Haylee graduated from LSU (Geaux Tigers!) in May 2023 with a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication concentrating in Journalism and a minor in Political Science. While at LSU she was involved in Tiger TV where she held various roles including News Reporter, Producer and News Director.
Although Haylee attended LSU, she does not have any family from Louisiana. She claims Savannah, Ga. as where she is “from” even though she has lived in nine different states so far. Those include North Carolina, Alaska, Kentucky, Oklahoma, New York, Georgia, Louisiana, Florida and now Alabama.
When Haylee is not reporting, you can find her reading at the beach, visiting her parents in Panama City or adventuring in her new home city of Mobile.
