About Shannon

I've worked as a journalist for 23 years. Twelve of those years are in newsroom leadership and senior editorial roles. I am comfortable with a range of radio formats ranging from live hosting to breaking headline news to production of investigative documentaries. I am able to produce quality content under tight deadline pressure, but value opportunities to take my time with stories that shine.
