Shannon Davidson - 19 Action News|Cleveland, OH|News, Weather, Sports


Shannon Davidson is thrilled to be back in her hometown doing what she loves. You can catch Shannon's live reports each morning on 19 Action News This Morning from 4:30-8am.

A graduate of Rocky River High School and Miami University, Shannon's career goal was always to return to Cleveland to report the news. "My family has been waiting a long time to turn on the television and see me, so all the hard work was worth it."

Shannon started her TV career right where she is now - at WOIO-WUAB. "I interned here in college, and then landed a production assistant/assignment editor position after I graduated. But I knew I wanted to report, and that meant I had to leave the nest."

She headed to WOAY-TV in Oak Hill, WV, where she wore many hats. Shannon produced, reported, anchored, shot her own video, and even rolled the tapes during the 11pm newscast. "It was definitely an experience, but I'm proud that I started out in a small market, and worked my way up."

Soon, Shannon found herself anchoring the morning and noon show at WEVV in bigger market Evansville, IN. Then, it was onto Louisville, KY, where she reported and anchored at WAVE-TV for three years. "I absolutely loved Louisville. The people were amazing, the community had so much to offer, and some of my career highlights include interviewing many celebrities at The Kentucky Derby." Shannon then moved onto WHP-TV in Harrisburg, PA, where in 2009, she was nominated for an Emmy Award for "Best Reporter Features/Human Interest."

In her spare time, Shannon likes to cook, entertain, workout, and spend time with her family and friends. You'll most likely catch her at several Indians, Browns, and Cavs games too!
