As you flip through the channels, watch out for BYU alumni, Kelsey Nixon, host of “Kelsey’s Homemade,” which premiered on the Cooking Channel, Nov. 14.

A graduate of BYU’s broadcast journalism program and Le Cordon Bleu in Hollywood, Nixon got started in the food media industry at BYU when she created “Kelsey’s Kitchen,” a college cooking show emphasizing fast, fun and affordable meals for college students.

Her television career jumpstarted when she finished fourth as a contestant on “The Next Food Network Star.” Her next show, “Kelsey’s Essentials,” brought more success as she launched a line of kitchen gear and was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in the Outstanding Culinary Host category for her work on the show.
