TV18 Station Manager

Email: Call: 970-871-4222

Kelly Anzalone has been interested in Video Production since the day his Dad brought home their first Curtis Mathis VCR. Kelly loved the buttons and the lights. From then on, Kelly has been fortunate enough to know that is what he wanted to persue as a career. He took several college Video Production classes in high school and then chose Fredonia State University because it had 1 of only 3 completely student-run television stations in the nation, WNYF-TV. WNYF was very fun and exciting for Kelly. He became the Chief Engineer his second semester Freshmen year, Station Manager his Junior year and produced his own show called "Out of Sync" for 3 years. Kelly was chosen for a 15 credit internship at WKBK-TV, the ABC affiliate in Buffalo, NY where he learned the ins and outs of the city's number one news station. After college he was offered a full-time job in the Engineering Department doing everything from sound, Chyron, camera, and running the live microwave remotes. Kelly eventually ended up becoming the Studio Manager. However, the Winter before Kelly started at WKBW, he spent time in Steamboat Springs, CO, and the appeal of the mountains was too much for him. Kelly moved to Steamboat the Winter of '95-'96 and he has been here ever since. Kelly worked as a Commercial Producer for ATT Media, then Comcast Spotlight for 5 years during which time Kelly also started his own production company: KPA Productions in 2003. Kelly left Comcast in 2005 to start Steamboat Mountain Theater. Unfortunately the building that the theater was in got torn down.
