Brittany Pelletz

Brittany was born in Massachusetts, but as a child moved around a lot. She's lived in Arizona, Florida, California, Texas, and most recently Kentucky. Brittany graduated from Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida. Her career in journalism began in Abilene. For three years, Brittany was an anchor and reporter, covering everything in the Big Country with a focus on city government for KRBC. Brittany also ended up meeting her now-husband, Justin during that time. While in Abilene Brittany was a Big Sister for the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization and also coached several youth cheerleading squads.

Since Brittany was chasing a childhood dream, she eventually ventured off to Lexington, Kentucky for her next job in the business. While there, Brittany was the weekend anchor and a general assignment reporter for the CBS affiliate, WKYT. After two years away from the Big Country and away from her husband, Brittany realized home is where your heart is. Brittany had plans to head back to the Big Country to be reunited with her Texas family.  When the KTAB anchor position opened, she knew it was meant to be. Brittany started anchoring evening newscasts for KTAB mid-December of 2013. Brittany is excited about her new role in the Abilene community. She's looking forward to reconnecting with viewers, old friends, and making new ones. When Brittany isn't working, she's spending time with family, working out, dancing, traveling to new places, volunteering, and often times shopping.
