Courtney Spinelli was born and raised in a suburb just north of Boston. She is a graduate of Worcester State University, where she majored in Communication and was a member of the Lambda Pi Eta National Communication Association’s honor society. In addition to her time at WSU, Courtney also attended Marist College for a semester while interning in New York City.
Courtney began her career at Boston 25 News, where she spent over two years as an assignment editor. During her time in Boston, she earned an Emmy nomination for her contribution to an investigative report. Courtney spent her time in Boston covering major local and national breaking news stories, learning from her mentors in the newsroom and the field, and creating her demo reel to make her transition into an on-air reporting position.
Courtney grew up well-involved in sports and is an avid football fan. She was a competitive dancer for 15 years, competed in cheerleading, and in track and field. She continued her career in both dance and track and field at the collegiate level during her time at Worcester State University. During her time at Boston 25 News, Courtney continued to pursue her love for cheerleading on the side. She was an assistant coach at Tewksbury Memorial High School, where she worked with the varsity cheerleading team.
Courtney is grateful for her time in the Boston area, but she is thrilled to join the KWQC-TV6 News team and be able to call the Quad Cities her new home!
