Fighting fires, you see, is Kelley’s second job. A hobby, if you will, that satiates his appetite to do more for the community than to just be on the radio and watch Pelicans basketball for a living like his first job requires. “I always wanted to be able to use sports, or my job in sports, to affect something else,” Kelley said. “So I’ve always tried to do something along the way on the side. There’s always been that wanting, and it’s not necessarily giving back, but to do something to make somebody’s life better.” A Romantic Connection Truth is, Kelley took a circuitous route to get where he is today, a key member of the Saints and Pelicans digital and radio staffs as both the voice of the basketball team and host of the Black and Blue Report online.
