Shane's love for journalism was sparked at an early age.
When he was a teenager, Shane was always wanting to know what was happening in the world, and he decided he was going to contribute to the news.
Born and raised in Kokomo, Indiana, Shane kept his Hoosier roots by attending Indiana University. During his time at IU, he accomplished his goal of graduating in four years with a Bachelors Degree in Communications with a concentration in Journalism and a minor in Political Science. He also received an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice.
In the summer of 2013, Shane was a reporter intern at WISH TV in Indianapolis. During his time at WISH, he covered breaking stories and gained knowledge of how the hectic news field works.
In his spare time, Shane loves to be around his wife, family, friends, and two pets (a Siberian Husky named Meeka and a cat named Dora).
An avid golfer, and passionate sports fan, Shane loves to talk about almost any sport.
Shane loves the Quad Cities and he wants to tell stories that make a difference in the community. If you have any story ideas, send Shane an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow him on Twitter @WQADShane.
And of course if you see Shane around, be sure to say hi!
