Shannon was born and raised in the Saylorsburg area of the Poconos, spending much time on his family farm watching old TV shows including, “WKRP in Cincinnati”. This ultimately led to his love of radio broadcasting.
He is a proud graduate of Stroudsburg High School. During his high school days he played football, ran for class president, and liked to participate in various other school activities.
In the early 1990’s he received an Associate’s Degree in Communications from Northampton Community College. His first job in radio was the overnight DJ shift for a small radio station located in the Mount Pocono area (WPMR). Unfortunately, it is no longer in existence.
Shannon has lots of road-experience as well as life experience. He drove various trucks for his family business for years. He’s traveled quite a bit and has lived in many parts of the country. He loves the Poconos the best.
He has musical-experience too! For many years Shannon has worked with and managed several local bands. He dabbles a little with the guitar and has performed with local bands. He has spent time working as a private DJ and karaoke-show host at numerous local venues.
If that wasn’t enough, Shannon gives back to his community! He has coordinated three charity motorcycle rides for breast cancer research.
Shannon has been an off-again on-again guest of The Gary in the Morning Show over the last decade and joined the team officially in 2013 on Pocono 96.7 FM. In 2014 he joined The Gary in the Morning Sports Department. He covers all sports but is our NASCAR expert. You can hear him Tuesday and Friday mornings on The Gary in the Morning Show.
