After graduating college, Kennedi began her career at FOX Carolina's sister station WRDW/WAGT, News 12 in Augusta, Ga. Within her first year in Augusta, Kennedi was promoted to cover the City/Government beat. On top of keeping up with city business she did investigative pieces and covered stories of national interest, including the 1-year anniversary of Ahmaud Arbery’s death and the 7-day murder trial for 3 former-Washington County deputies.
She joined FOX Carolina in June 2022.
Now, she’s looking forward to telling stories in her hometown area. As a child, Kennedi was always curious and loved having a camera in her hand; she turned those passions into a career. Her favorite question to ask is “why?” She hopes to make a positive difference in the Upstate.

Most memorable story you've covered:
My most memorable story is participating in Augusta’s Point in Time Count. It’s an overnight, annual count of the homeless population living on the streets. In the middle of the night, I joined a team of volunteers and County Marshal’s to survey Augusta’s homeless population, the highest the city had ever counted, in the middle of a housing crisis. The story highlighted the realities of living without shelter and the need for resources in Augusta.
