Shannon Rousseau is a Weekend Anchor/Reporter at FOX 4. She comes to Kansas City from Tulsa, Oklahoma where she worked as an Anchor/Reporter for three years.
Shannon is a two-time Regional Edward R. Murrow Recipient for “Overall Excellence,” an award she shares with her Tulsa colleagues. She got her start in the broadcast industry in Rochester, Minnesota where she worked as a Weekend Anchor/Producer/Reporter for three years.
Originally from Texas, Shannon loves a good barbecue joint and she’s already scoping out the best spots in KC! (She has a soft spot for Jack Stack). Many of her family members live in the area and she has fond memories of spending several Christmases in the metro with her extended family. She’s excited to continue exploring all that Kansas City has to offer, which hopefully includes some visits to Arrowhead Stadium to cheer on the Chiefs!
An introvert at heart, Shannon loves spending her time away from work at one of three places: 1) the gym, 2) home with a good book/Netflix show, 3) or enjoying nature with a long hike or bike ride.
She loves to tell health and medical stories but wants to hear from you no matter what your story idea may be! Just send her an email at Shannon.Rousseau@fox4kc.com or connect with her on Facebook or Twitter.
Also, her last name is French and is pronounced (ROO-so). 😁
