Breathtaking, Kind, Sophisticated, Enchanting. Four words that describe what I saw the first time I met our next #HeySTAR Twitterview guest Keltie Knight. I was blessed to spend the day with her on the Red Carpet at the Billboard Awards as a Social Media Correspondent for The Insider. It was really cool to watch the way that Celebrities lit up when they walked up to our spot on red carpet, she has this way of making people feel so special. We’re really excited to welcome her to our ‘Pink Star’ Twitter Carpet on Thursday July 23 at 6pPT/9pET, the day after she makes a cameo appearance in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No.
Knight is a former classical ballerina and Radio City Rockette from Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada. Currently, she’s a correspondent and weekend host of CBS’s The Insider, Knight has interviewed the biggest celebrities in the world including Oprah, Taylor Swift, Pink, Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, U2, Stevie Wonder, Adam Levine, Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, and Gwenyth Paltrow.

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website CMChatLIVE.com. My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat.
It all started with a hunch…back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.)
I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
