Shawn Ireland's voice and face have been familiar to Central Ohioans for many years. In fact, Shawn has been heard on different Columbus area radio stations for 30 years! Aside from a 2-year stint on an all-female morning show in San Diego, most of her broadcast journey has been spent entertaining radio listeners and television viewers throughout Central Ohio.
When she is not entertaining and informing Good Day Columbus viewers weekdays on FOX 28, and helping local businesses thrive each day on Good Day Marketplace, she is busy pioneering her own syndicated radio show and entertainment enterprise called “The Shawn and Kate Show”. The show is a 2-hour weekend, plug and play radio program heard on many Ohio stations, with accompanying podcasts and video excerpts aired daily at www.shawnandkateshow.com. Shawn says, “If you love to laugh, listen to great music, and get unsolicited advice, then this is the show for you!” It’s Fun-Real-Radio! Shawn is also very involved in charitable causes in Central Ohio, and is very proud of her program “Beauty’s on the Inside”, a self-esteem program for young girls.
Shawn is also a devoted, proud, single mom with a 24-year-old son who lives in L.A. and a 19-year-old daughter attending The Ohio State University. Shawn also has 3 lovable dogs of very questionable intelligencewhich she suspects could have something to do with her single status! When she does have down time (which rarely exists), she loves working out, entertainment venues, and watching mindless, reality TV which includes all “The Bachelor” franchises! She calls it her training manual of what NOT to do! Regardless, Shawn always tackles the crazy with a smile and a true love of adventure each day!
