After hearing that beloved traffic anchor Bob Kelly had been taken to the hospital, Day Good Philadelphia viewers became worried.

On August 1, 2023, he returned to his regular timeslot, but the audience is curious as to what happened.

Who is Bob Kelly?

At Fox 29 Philadelphia, Bob Kelly is best known for his work as a traffic anchor and a feature reporter.

After working for CBS 3 in Philadelphia for 13 years as a traffic anchor, he first started working for the network in October 2014.

He stated to South Jersey Magazine in 2018: “I started at 102.9 MGK and worked up and down the dial at all the hot stations.”

“However, the music business was beginning to change. Everything was prerecorded; there were fewer DJs actually playing live on the radio. Traffic is going to be extremely heavy, my agent informed me. How about you DJ that? Traffic is live and will always be live; it cannot be recorded in advance.

“So I decided to DJ the traffic instead of praising the Rolling Stones.”

Kelly hosts the regular morning segments Kelly’s Classroom, Breakfast with Bob, and Town Takeover in addition to serving as the anchor of Good Day Philadelphia, which takes him all over the Philadelphia region.

What happened to Bob Kelly?

Kelly went to a gathering at Sea Isle City’s Oar House Pub on July 30, 2023. He was confronted by a man at the Jersey Shore location, who then poured beer on his head and shoulder.

The Philadelphia Inquirer was informed by sources that the man punched Kelly in the face after he reacted. He wasn’t seriously hurt, but he was taken to Cape Regional Medical Center.

On August 1, he appeared back on Good Morning Philadelphia and spoke about the incident, thanking the audience for their support.

Kelly expressed her gratitude for all the messages.

“… I’m fine. It was a terrifying, upsetting incident that was reportedly sparked by this TikTok challenge, not unlike what you saw happen to Cardi B when she was submerged in water and was being recorded.”

“I’m just going to leave it at that. The cause of the assault is under investigation, but I hope that this can shed some light on the madness that is going on and put a stop to it.”

Is Bob Kelly married?

Kelly frequently spends time at home with his family when he isn’t filming on location.

His Fox 29 bio states that he lives in a Philadelphia suburb with his wife and six children, but as of right now, not much is known about his family because they tend to avoid the spotlight and social media.
