Kristen joined WDRB News in 2019 and is very excited to be part of the team.

Before landing in Kentucky, Kristen reported for FOX 5 San Diego and worked as an anchor/reporter at KFOR in Oklahoma City. She got her start in news at KXII-TV in Sherman, TX.

Kristen has covered everything from high-profile cases, Oklahoma tornadoes, California wildfires and the President's trip to the border.

Diving a little into her personal life, Kristen is a Texas native who graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. Hook 'em! In her free time she enjoys catching up with family and friends, and snuggling with her 8lb Chorkie "Pinto Bean." Also when she's not at work, Kristen loves listening to live music and checking out new places to eat. If you have any recommendations in Kentuckiana let her know!

Kristen is an open book and her passion is to tell people's stories. If you have a story you think should be told email her at kshanahan@wdrb.com.
