FOX59 Sports anchor/reporter Charly Arnolt is thrilled to be back in her hometown covering the sports scene.

After graduating from North Central High School, Charly went to the east coast to attend American University. Her broadcast career then took her to the mountains of West Virginia and later to Kansas City, Mo.

Charly loves reporting sports as well as playing them! Unfortunately, her dreams of being a pro beach volleyball player ended when she failed to grow taller than 5-feet-2-inches. Charly still enjoys a good competition whether it’s on the court, the pool table or just in the form of a staring contest.

She loves meeting new people and trying new things. Please say hello if you see her out and about!
