She then proceeded to the popular University of Miami where she earned herself a master’s degree in Broadcast Journalism, taking her one step closer to becoming a professional sportscaster.

Upon graduation, she began working for ACC Digital Network, starting out as a production assistant and host. After two years at the network, having earned the most important first practical experience in her field, she moved up to Fox Sports Florida in 2013 where she became a reporter, specializing in news about a few of Florida’s top teams such as Orlando Magic, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Tampa Bay Rays.
The universe is chaos and the path to the top is never defined. Gaining national reputation is the goal of any aspiring broadcaster, especially in sports and Kelly Nash achieved hers in 2013 through a selfie. The infamous selfie which led to the national attention that eventually led her to the job as co-host for The Rundown, was of her taking a picture at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, while a ball came within inches of hitting her.
She began to work for the MLB Network in 2015, achieving a childhood dream of becoming a national broadcaster, by replacing Lauren Shehadi as part of the host line up on The Rundown.
