Keli Moore

Adventurer, Surfer, Journalist

Many on California’s Central Coast wake up to Keli Moore as she anchors the Daybreak show on KSBY (NBC) with Richard Gearhart. Her days begin early, the alarm goes off at 2:45 a.m., but she stays focused and energetic throughout the day by keeping up with the latest health trends.

The human aspect of journalism is Keli’s passion — and its through reporting that she has the ability to connect meaningful causes with her audience. Best known for her Healthy Living and Foodie Friday segments on KSBY, she shares her latest findings in local and national advances in health — and how the food you eat affects wellbeing.

Career & Education

 Before arriving in San Luis Obispo to join the KSBY news team, Keli worked for several affiliates in California; including Time Warner Cable's Channel 3 News in north Los Angeles, KPSP (CBS), and KESQ (ABC). Keli’s career in journalism started after graduating from Masters in Broadcast Journalism program at University of Southern California (USC) in 2009. With previous courses of study in Public Communication, Economics and Art History — journalism became the outlet where her combined experiences could naturally merge.

International Assignments

 In 2008, Keli had the opportunity to work at CNN’s Asia headquarters in the months leading up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The opportunity to work in the rapid-fire international newsroom prepared her for the increasingly fast-paced nature of news reporting that we see today.


 An ocean lover at heart, Keli grew up far from the beach in Sedona, Arizona. There, she grew an affinity for the outdoors and a great respect for nature. Her childhood and teen years were anything but ordinary. She trained for the Junior Olympics as a downhill skier, and spent a lot of time with her Grandfather, Jack Meany, a pilot and seaman, spurring Keli’s interest in aviation and sailing. As Keli got older, she started to travel. Spending large chunks of time living out of a bag traveling across Africa, Europe, Asia, New Zealand and even to the Galapogos Islands. Today, whenever she has the time, you can find Keli surfing, snowboarding, hiking, Crossfit training and practicing yoga.

Creating a goal-driven statement of what a product or application does results in better product experiences. It meets expectations because it is focused on solving the problem it was created to address. There is power in doing one thing and it doing it very well.

Fitts' law is centered around a mathematical equation that is used to illustrate the time it takes to reach a target object. A target object, in the context of UIs, can be any interactive element, such as a submit button, a hyperlink, and an input field in a web form. The idea is this: The quicker you can reach a target object, the more convenient and easy it is to use. Jason Gross From Improving Usability with Fitts' Law
Visual weight revolves around the idea that distinct elements in a design have varying heaviness relative to each other. Sometimes visual weight is obvious, such as in the case where larger objects appear heavier than smaller objects because they take up more space. In certain instances, it’s not so cut and dry, such as in the case of color. Some colors may look as if they are heavier and more dominant than others.
