Allen Kinzly

Allen Kinzly was born in Douglasville, Georgia and has lived his whole life except one year in the Peach State.  After graduating from high school in Peachtree City, GA, he attended one year of college in Birmingham, AL but ended up transferring to and graduating from the University of Georgia.  While at UGA he spent 3 years as the mascot for the Bulldogs, donning the outfits of Spike and Hairy Dawg.  With a degree in Sports Communications in hand and a year of interning at the Atlanta FOX affiliate under his belt, his first ‘real job’ after school was as the weekend sports anchor/reporter at the ABC and FOX duopoly in Savannah, GA.  As a ‘one man band,’ he shot, edited, produced, wrote and presented local sportscasts for 5 years in the Coastal Empire and South Carolina Lowcountry.  After returning to Atlanta, Kinzly held many jobs as a producer, photographer and editor at both The Weather Channel and at the #1 ABC affiliate in the country, Atlanta’s WSB-TV.  In the summer of 2014, the Archdiocese of Atlanta created a ‘multi-media specialist’ position in the Communications department that would have a heavy emphasis on videography.  He was offered the job and has been building the position, video library and communications within the Archdiocese ever since.  He is a CPA award winner for a variety of categories and enjoys the “better hours and less stress than a TV newsroom.”  In his free time, Kinzly plays and refs soccer, competes in triathlons (half Ironman finisher!) and attends sporting events of his beloved Georgia Bulldogs and Atlanta sports teams.
