Shelly Watkins

General Manager

Shelly's 23-year career in broadcasting began in Flagstaff in the late 1980's. After graduating from NAU, she spent more than a decade working at Channel 2 - Flagstaff's NBC Affiliate - a reporter, news director, and ultimately, general manager. In 2000, she moved to Los Angeles, to become Lead Writer for the KNBC. From there, she continued her career producing and writing news in both the San Francisco area, and in Phoenix. In 2007, she returned to Flagstaff, joining KNAU in July of that year as Director of Underwriting, and most recently in September of 2013 accepting the position of KNAU General Manager. When not working, Shelly enjoys writing, creating metal art and jewelry, refurbishing old houses, and spending time with family and friends.

We Heard You!

Many listeners have told us you prefer that we ask for your support in between programs rather than with a week of pledge drive program interruptions in October. So, this year we’re trying something totally new - Pledge Drive Lite.

What does this mean?

It means KNAU's fall fundraising campaign is on NOW and it's time to give!
