Like most, Kelly started his career at a very young age (17) in a small town called Hartwell, Ga. WKLY was your typical AM station that played everything from Country, to Gospel, Top 40, and Easy Listening.
After a couple of stints in Athens, WQXI in Atlanta came calling. After 7 years on Quixie, McCoy moved to WSB FM. On B98.5, Kelly was the Afternoon Drive guy for 27 years.
He retired in 2012. In 2013, he was inducted into the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame. After a fabulous forty years in Atlanta, 2018 brought him “back home” to the Athens area where he now lives in Watkinsville.
