Kelli O’Hara

Kelli O’Hara joined 7NEWS in July, 2014 as a reporter.

The North Shore native is excited to return home to Boston after spending the last decade reporting at stations across the country.

In 2010, Kelli produced a ground-breaking series for Utah television viewers on a mother’s confessions from behind bars… a mother accused of killing her own child. Another of her interviews led to a 20-year federal prison sentence after a man confessed his crime to Kelli.

Kelli has been honored with two Associated Press Awards and received several Emmy nominations. Salt Lake City Magazine named Kelli the “Toughest Reporter” in Utah.

Before her career in news, Kelli taught History in Charlestown and English in Poland.

Kelli has a Master’s Degree in Journalism from Boston University and an undergraduate degree in Political Science from Mount Holyoke.

Kelli lives just outside of Boston with her husband. When she’s not working she enjoys drinking coffee, reading, traveling and spending time with her parents.
