Kennedy is from Wayne, Nebraska, where she tries to visit often.
Kennedy attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She graduated in 2017 with majors in broadcasting and journalism with emphases in political science, English and music.
Kennedy has always loved writing, but after her first journalism class at UNL, she knew she wanted to go into news. Her professors taught with such conviction and passion for journalism, and she wanted to be a part of something so important.
Kennedy was formally a news editor, reporter and anchor in Lincoln.
In her free time she enjoys spending time with her nieces and nephews, trying new restaurants (but always returning to Runza), spending hours roaming the aisles of Marshall's and Home Goods and cheering on the Huskers.
