The Lead: Kelsey Coffey on Knowing What Drives You

Kelsey Coffey gets up at 2:30 a.m. every day to deliver the morning news as a broadcast reporter at WRAL in Raleigh, North Carolina. She graduated from the University of Georgia in 2020 into uncertainty from the pandemic and protests for racial justice across the country. But today, she knows what drives her to wake up early each morning — connecting with her audience and serving them through her reporting.

In this episode, Kelsey talks about the projects she’s worked on with Charlayne Hunter-Gault, a phenomenal journalist and one of two students who desegregated UGA in 1961, and about why it’s important to know your “why.”

Guest: Kelsey Coffey, reporter at WRAL
