Kelly Fedor is Channel 9’s Chief Court Reporter and calls the Supreme Court her second home. During her six years with the network she has reported on the life sentence handed to the state’s most infamous detective Roger Rogerson, the jailing of former Labor MP Eddie Obeid, the trial of property developer Ron Medich and the arrest of Chris Dawson 37 years after his wife disappeared. She is also regularly in the thick of it, covering bushfires, floods and more recently the Sydney to Hobart race.
Her television career followed a long stint in radio at Sydney’s number one station 2GB where she worked with Alan Jones and Ray Hadley. There she also covered some of the nation’s biggest stories which included the 2011 Brisbane floods, the arrest of Malcolm Naden and the funeral for underworld figure Carl Williams.
Kelly loves her job because she has a front seat as history is made, it allows her to write, tell stories and develop connections with inspiring people. It also means she doesn’t have to sit in an office from nine to five.
Kelly is from the Blue Mountains and is the daughter of Margaret and Ivan Fedor. Ivan was a passionate Rotarian which means the organisation has been a part of her life since she was a child. In fact, at the age of just 16 she worked hard to secure a spot in the Rotary Youth Exchange program and she moved to the US state of North Carolina. During those 12 months she got to go to Prom & Homecoming, be a part of the track team and travel across the country in a bus for three weeks. It was a year which helped shape her life.
