About Chelsea Beimfohr: 

"Journalism is history on the run!"

Chelsea Beimfohr is currently an evening news reporter at WKRN in Nashville, Tennessee. She covers crime and breaking news.


Chelsea moved to Music City in July 2020 during the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and has reported on it extensively. 

 

One of the most notable events Chelsea has covered in Tennessee was the Nashville 2020 Christmas Day bombing. She recently won an Emmy in the category of best evening newscast for her contributions to the 12-hour live coverage and 10pm newscast of the deadly event. 

 

Chelsea grew up in Metro Atlanta and graduated cum laude from The University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism. From there she moved to Macon, Georgia where she was the weekend anchor and an investigative reporter at 13WMAZ.

 

While in Central Georgia Chelsea reported on dozens of cold cases, the fluctuating homicide rate in Macon-Bibb County, and the 14-year long murder mystery of South Georgia teacher and beauty queen, Tara Grinstead, which made national headlines.


Chelsea has covered three Presidential visits to both Georgia and Tennessee and was selected to be a member of the White House Press Pool in 2019. She followed President Donald Trump during his visit to Macon, as he met with farmers affected by Hurricane Michael. She also covered Dr. Jill Biden's visit to Nashville where the First Lady hosted a COVID-19 vaccination clinic and encouraged Americans to get the shot.

 
Chelsea made her TV debut at the age of two on KAKE-TV in Wichita, Kansas, where her father was the evening sports anchor.


When she’s not reporting, Chelsea enjoys spending time with friends and family and cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs!
