Wright honored as 'Man of Style'

December 11, 2009|By MADGE MILES

Kelly Wright, who was raised in the Hagerstown area, is a general assignment reporter for the Fox News Channel and is a co-anchor of America's News Headquarters on Saturdays. You may have even seen him as a co-host of the Fox and Friends Weekend (July 2006 to January 2008) but that's not the reason he is in the news today.

On Monday, Nov. 30, in Washington, D.C., Wright was honored as a Gillette Man of Style.

The criteria for selecting the honorees was "The Best A Man Could Get."

Wright hopes this criteria, in part, will help him in his quest to reach out to the younger generation in the Hagerstown area and is in the process of creating a program called, Man UP!, scheduled to be launched in early February at the Memorial Recreation Center. He wants to reach out to young men, help to empower them and teach them a different style of dressing for success. He also wants to have workshops and guest speakers to help young men in their quest to be successful in whatever their dreams and goals are so they can be - The best a man can get!

Wright was truly honored to receive the award. It came as a surprise as he didn't realize that anyone was following his endeavors.

Wright has received numerous awards for his reporting, including two local area Emmy Awards for his developing, reporting and co-producing a documentary and news series on the transatlantic slave trade.

On Thursday, Dec. 10, Kelly traveled to New York to do a taping for Donnie McClurkin's TBN Christmas Special, which will be featured later this month, to discuss his book. He might even have a chance to show off his vocal talent!

Wright is definitely a man on a mission with hopes of inspiring the next generation to lead!
