After graduating with a journalism degree from the Utah State University, Shannon studied atmospheric science through Mississippi State University’s Distance Meteorology Program.
Growing up in Utah, Shannon has always loved knowing what’s going on in her community.
Shannon’s first television job was in Grand Junction, Colorado, where she covered marijuana legalization and the aftermath of several devastating wild fires.
Her career has taken her across the country, but she’s happy she landed in Anchorage in September of 2013.
While Shannon certainly has a passion for news, she loves the great outdoors as well.
Fun Fact: Shannon married into a long time Alaskan family. One set of grandparents homesteaded in Homer. The other came to Alaska to join the Territorial Police.
When Shannon isn’t working, she’s busy hiking, fishing, biking, and enjoying all the adventure Alaska has to offer.
