Interim News Director/Evening Anchor
Shelby co-anchors the 5 and 6 p.m. broadcast alongside Jay Hendricks. She joined the CBS7 team in 2017.
She is proud to call West Texas home. Growing up a proud "military brat," Shelby lived all over the world and graduated high school in Germany. Throughout the moves, West Texas was one constant. She spent part of every summer in the Permian Basin visiting family in Andrews. She has many fond, childhood memories of visiting the old prairie dog park in Andrews, eating steak fingers at Buddy's Drive-In, and playing in the Monahans Sandhills State Park. Now as a mother, Shelby and her husband are re-making those memories with their young daughter.
Shelby has always had a passion for people, a thirst for knowledge, and a love for story-telling. Shelby graduated from Trinity University with a Bachelor’s degree in Speech Communication and Business Administration, and she dove straight into broadcast journalism. She worked as an associate producer in San Antonio, then as a reporter and weekend anchor in North Texas/Southern Oklahoma before finally making her home in West Texas.
Shelby and her husband live in Odessa with their young daughter. Shelby enjoys giving back to her community by serving on the West Texas Food Bank Board of Directors, the John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute Advisory Board, and volunteering at her daughter’s school.
