In addition to success in the world of media and communications, Kelsey N. Nelson has embarked on a positive series of community-related philanthropy projects which give back, inspire and empower lives such as Nelson's non-profit organization with fellow University of Maryland-College Park students and alumni entitled "Books Breaking Borders: Books to End Educational Bankruptcy, which ensures that Nelson's impactful and unique voice is heard beyond just a microphone.
Relating to Nelson's charitable initiative "Books Breaking Borders: Books to End Educational Bankruptcy", the Marylander's ultimate goal is to essentially reduce illiteracy rates amongst minority children, thus ensuring that the United States polarizing educational system leaves no child behind. However, since the inception of FOX Sports Radio 96.9/1340 AM's popular show "Listen In With KNN", hosted by Nelson, the Maryland-born presenter has upped the ante vociferously.
Nelson has embraced stepping out of a comfort zone, admittedly basketball, football and baseball into a once unfamiliar territory with great transition and ease, notably discussing global sports trending topics and matters on "Listen In With KNN" such as the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 fiasco and Manchester City's 2017-2018 one-sided domination in the English Premier League. "Listen In With KNN" is an honest, insightful and refreshing Professional Sports talk show underpinned from a female's perspective.
"Listen In With KNN" has warmly welcomed a marquee litany of diverse celebrity special guests throughout the DMV area, as well as noteworthy superstars across the United States and internationally with a who's who including: Big Baller Brand CEO LaVar Ball, "Rutten and Ranallo" co-host/UFC Hall of Famer/CBS "Kevin Can Wait" Actor Bas Rutten, coupled alongside forthcoming must-listen "Listen In With KNN" appearances from E! television star of "WAGS of Atlanta" and Ring of Honor sensation Brandi Rhodes, 6-time Women's Professional Boxing Champion and Combate Americas superstar Amanda "The Real Deal" Serrano and ESPN's Jay Harris.
This summer, Nelson's FIFA World Cup 2018 Kick-Off Show takes over "Listen In With KNN" and guarantees special guest appearances, including FOX Sports Soccer Analyst and U.S soccer legend, Cobi Jones.
