Chelsea Croft joined the NBC Nebraska News 2 team in November 2015 as a news and sports reporter.

From Maryland, Chelsea Croft grew up in the Baltimore/Annapolis area. She is a graduate from the University of Maryland College Park, Philip Merrill School of Broadcast Journalism.

Chelsea has always been surrounded by sports; either playing them or watching them. She is a big fan of her hometown teams, the Baltimore Ravens and Orioles. Because of this love of sports, she decided to go into journalism, so she could report on what she is passionate about.

Interning with WTOP Radio sports, NBC Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic, and the Big Ten Network only confirmed Chelsea's decision to go into broadcasting. While in college, Chelsea also gained a real interest in reporting news stories and feature pieces.

Outside of work, Chelsea is a movie junkie, enjoys running; has run the Baltimore and Charleston, SC marathons. She likes to bake, spend free time at the beach and travel. So far she's visited Italy, Croatia, Greece, France, Canada, Australia and road tripped across the beautiful United States.

Chelsea would love to tell your story, if you have any story ideas or just want to say hello, please don't hesitate to email or reach on on social media.
