Shelby Kluver joined WQAD as a multi-skilled journalist in August 2020. 

Born and raised in South Dakota, Shelby moved to Chicago to pursue a broadcast degree from Loyola University Chicago. While she loves the city, moving to the Quad Cities - with the cornfields and close-knit communities - felt like moving back home, and she couldn't be happier. 

Since she began her career at WQAD, Shelby has worked mornings, nights, and weekends capturing pandemic struggles, community events, striking worker concerns, hospital injustices, and high school football highlights. 

Now as an anchor, she's also worked to bring daily segments to life on The Current on News 8 at 4 p.m., covering current news and events, with James Zahara on weather. She previously anchored the 6:30 p.m. newscast and brings familiar segments over to the 4 p.m., including 'What's Brewing' and 'Women In Sports.' 

Shelby is always open to new coffee shop suggestions - from anywhere within the WQAD viewing area! Feel free to send her one, along with any story ideas or tips, on her Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or email (shelby.kluver@wqad.com).
