Shelley Childers
Shelley joined Eyewitness News in February 2018.

She comes to ABC13 from Detroit where she spent two years covering the revitalization of Motown. From the detrimental impacts of the Flint Water Crisis and state take over of the Detroit public school system, to the ground breaking investment in driverless technology and new wave of enthusiasm for small business owners, she was there to document each step forward and the long journey ahead.

Before Detroit, Shelley spent several years along the Texas-Mexico border covering the explosive situation in the Rio Grande Valley. As a reporter/anchor/bureau chief for KRGV, she covered everything from civilian militias and human smuggling to kidnappings, drug trafficking and the 2014 humanitarian crisis.

Shelley began her career in Midland-Odessa covering the highs and lows of Texas' oil country. While in west Texas, she spent a week at MCRD San Diego experiencing the true grit of what it takes to join the U.S. Marine Corps.

Born in Houston and raised in Katy, she is a proud Taylor High School "Fighting Mustang" and Michigan State University grad.

Shelley brings with her accolades from the Texas AP Broadcasters, three rescue animals along with her husband and daughter. A lover of all things queso she is thrilled to be home in Space City. You can catch her at BBVA Compass Stadium cheering on the Dynamo most Saturday nights.
