Shawn Clynch started at KVUE in November 2012 and loves being able to deliver the sports world to his hometown (He’s a proud graduate of L.C. Anderson High School).
Shawn's career path started while he was in school in Nacogdoches, Texas where he attended Stephen F. Austin University. He’s a devoted and proud lumberjack, “Axe ‘em ‘Jacks!”
After college, Shawn began his career at the NBC affiliate in San Angelo, Texas as a news reporter and weekend sports anchor. He spent the next seven years in East Texas at the ABC affiliate KTRE where he worked alongside KVUE’s Bryan Mays and eventually was named sports director.
In 2007, he moved to Oklahoma City where he was a sports reporter and anchor for the Fox affiliate, KOKH. Shawn said he loved his time there, but the tornadoes and blizzards are not something he misses. Still, he became an OKC Thunder fan and said he will remain that way for the rest of his life.
“This is a dream come true for me, and I’m so grateful to be back home, working for my dream station – KVUE,” Shawn said of his current job. “Austin is a special place. I often refer to it as ‘God’s Country.’”
