Join Shawn and Teresa for the Wake-Up Show!
Shawn joins Teresa Berry and the Wake-Up Show weekday mornings 5am-10am.
I always knew I’d be a broadcaster of some kind. My mom told me I used to play ‘DJ’ on the floor of the living room as a small child. When I turned 15, I got my first ‘big break’ by becoming a DJ at the local roller skating rink. Once I got that microphone in front of me, my fate was sealed. Broadcasting, here I came.
I’ve been on the radio all over Connecticut, including Kiss 95.7 and 96.5 TIC in Hartford, KC101 in New Haven and Q105 in New London. I’m very excited to be at my new home: Soft Rock 106.5 WBMW and sister station Jammin 1077.
I also have a national radio gig at FOX Sports Radio, usually covering UConn home games during college football and basketball seasons. Before that, I worked for Sporting News Radio. When I’m not on the radio, I’m on TV. I host a public affairs show on the Connecticut and Rhode Island affiliates of the ION Television Network. I also serve as Public Affairs Director of said affiliates.
