Bob Kelly

Traffic Anchor and Feature Reporter

Bob Kelly joined the FOX 29 News team in October 2014 as the traffic reporter for "Good Day Philadelphia."  In that role he also hosts the regular morning segments "Kelly’s Classroom," "Breakfast with Bob," and "Town Takeover," all which take him out into the community to connect with "Good Day Philadelphia" viewers. 

He also hosts "Kelly Drives," a weekly half hour show in which Bob takes a ride around the Philadelphia area, showing off interesting places to visit.  The show debuted in February 2022, and airs Thursdays at 6:30pm.

Prior to joining FOX 29, Bob was the Traffic Anchor for 13 years at CBS 3 in Philadelphia.  He became the first Philadelphia traffic anchor to do his reports in front of the green screen.  Animated and fun to watch with his highly popular phrases like Jammo, Two Jelly Donut Delay, and the Conshy Curve, Bob is now referred to by so many as "The Dean of Traffic." 

Through the years, the Emmy Award-winning Traffic Anchor has entertained sports fans on the Jumbotron at the Eagles, Flyers and Sixers games, and with his popular segment "Tailgate Takeover," before Eagles games.  He also co-hosted the Philadelphia St. Patrick's Day Parade for more than 15 years.  

Growing up in Northeast Philadelphia where they always decorate for Christmas, he created "A Very Kelly Christmas," hitting the road during the month of December and broadcasting LIVE from the front lawns of the best decorated houses. 

Bob began his career as a radio disc jockey, working with Jerry Blavat, The Geator. 

He worked up and down the dial at Philly's hottest radio stations, until traffic became news and he joined KYW News Radio with Traffic on the 2's. 

A Northeast Philadelphia native, Bob knows all the neighborhoods, the landmarks, and the best place to get a great jelly donut. A graduate of North Catholic High School and Temple University, he is a local guy through and through.  Bob has three children, two grand children, and he resides in Malvern, PA.
