Kristi Nelson’s obsession over journalism started when she was just at the age of nine, as Santa, mystically left a typewriter for her beneath the Christmas tree.
The youngster soon began battering out articles based on the ideas she grasped from watching TV. She would later cut and paste the stories in a printed form and sell it out to her family members and that too for 25 cents.
Henceforth, Kristi found her real calling early on, and this truly helped her pursue news and storytelling in the long run.
She even got enrolled in formal education accordingly, receiving a prestigious master's degree at Columbia University.
Today, Kristi shows her affiliation to KXAS-TV NBC 5 News, co-anchoring NBC 5 First at Four, NBC 5 News at 11 am, NBC 5 Talk Street and Lone Star Politics.
Besides, she is a regular presence throughout the week on several other NBC 5 programs.

Kristi donated a kidney to her mother. It was during August 2011 that Kristi documented the process in a multiple-part series and called it “Kristi’s Gift”- that aired on NBC5. The very series earned her an Emmy award.
Married To Husband?
Digging through her life stories thus far, it is evident that Kristi is not married and does not have someone in her life whom she could address as her husband.
On valentines day, she would rather indulge herself in the yummiest looking cupcakes than date nights with her love. At the current phase of her life, it is too soon to pass any conclusions or judgments in regards to her private affairs.
