Chelsea Donovan

Chelsea Donovan is excited to be back in television news after a brief hiatus! After graduating from East Carolina in 2004 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, Chelsea signed on as a producer at WITN-TV in Greenville. NC. After a year producing she moved to Reporter and Fill-In Anchor, and finally spent her final 3 years in the market as the Jacksonville Bureau Chief covering the military, and the Eastern Carolina Coast. Chelsea spent 6 years, writing, shooting and editing stories of Eastern Carolinians in more than 30 counties. After a career change to Event Sales that lasted 4 years here in Wilmington, Chelsea constantly had the "itch" to return to reporting. Her parents have recently retired to Wilmington, and Chelsea and her two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, call the Port City home. In her spare time Chelsea enjoys experiencing everything Wilmington has to offer! Taking her dogs to the beach, traveling, trying new restaurants and spending time with her boyfriend, family and friends.
