Biography

Shannon spent four years in television news working at WMBF-TV in Myrtle Beach. She built a solid news foundation by starting in news production, running cameras, audio, and on-air graphics for the station’s morning show. From there, she took on the role of producer for the 4pm newscast, where she also had the responsibility of coordinating guests and content for the show’s human interest segment. After more than a year at the helm of a newscast, Shannon took her love of “tease” writing and joined the marketing team, where she excelled at video production, commercial writing, and voiceover. She’s thrilled to be a part of the Communication, Media and Culture department at CCU. Go Chants!
