Shannon began at WAVE 3 News in June 2013. She is thrilled to bring viewers the news in WAVE Country and raise her twin boys in the area with many family members and friends.  

Shannon came to WAVE 3 News from WFOR/CBS 4 in Miami where she was the primary anchor. She also anchored the morning show for KTVT/CBS 11 in Dallas, where she contributed stories about former Dallas Cowboys players for a show hosted by Troy Aikman and Babe Laufenberg.

A graduate of Indiana University, Shannon grew up in Roselle, Ill., and met her husband Kendall while working in Louisville in 1994. Their twin boys, Colt and Cade, keep them very busy. Colt was born with a rare congenital heart defect, and the family is very active raising awareness and funds for organizations that assist children’s health.

Shannon serves on the board of Heuser Hearing & Language Academy. Colt is a graduate of the school that serves deaf and hard-of-hearing children from birth to kindergarten. She also contributes to events for Kosair Children’s Hospital, The American Heart Association and The Speed Museum.
