A self-proclaimed Appalachian American, Shawn joined NewsRadio1620 on New Years Day 2013, and hasn’t looked back since. Moving to Pensacola from Kentucky in 2010, he’s spent the last 3 years working as an event dj with Boogie Inc. While studying communications at LMU in Harrogate, Tn, he “cut his teeth” in radio by hosting a rock and roll program at 91.3 The Gap. At the beginning of 2013, Shawn was inducted into the Honorary Order of Kentucky Colonels in his homestate, fullfilling a childhood dream. An avid student of history, Shawn has found the Greater Pensacola area facinating, and although he misses the mountains, feels he’s at home here.
