Forbes Magazine has tabbed Washington and Lee alumna Kelly Evans, of the Class of 2007, to its annual list of 30 Under 30: Media — "the next wave of power players in the news and information industries."
Kelly is an on-air correspondent with CNBC, based in London. She reports for the network's business day program and anchors "Worldwide Exchange" on CNBC Europe.
She joined CNBC in February 2012 after working as a reporter and columnist for The Wall Street Journal since 2007. Not only did she write the "Ahead of the Tape" column and write for "Heard on the Street" for the Journal, but she also hosted the daily "News Hub" program on WSJ.com.
In its description of Kelly, Forbes wrote that "she's one of the recognizable young faces on CNBC, where she reports on 'Squawk Box' and throughout the day. She honed her financial news chops as a reporter at the Wall Street Journal."
Of course, Kelly actually began honing her chops on "The Rockbridge Report" in W&L's Reid Hall.
