Kellie was born in South Carolina with aspirations of becoming an actress. The owner of a local radio station saw her at a talent convention and thought she had the perfect personality for radio. She began by sitting in with the local morning show and got paid only if they used her. After four months of showing up with donuts every day, the news girl quit and Kellie got her shot. She went on to host her own morning show and in 1994, saw an ad about working with some guy named Kidd. She auditioned for the job and got it. Thus began the unique Kraddick/Rasberry partnership.
Since working with KKITM, Kellie has won several “Favorite Female Radio Personality of the Year” awards, appeared in the made-for-TV movie Holiday In Your Heart (starring LeAnn Rimes), and co-hosted an episode of Live! With Regis during the show’s “Women of Radio” week.
Kellie is the proud mother of Emma Kelly.
