News 4 anchor Shelby Sheehan came to KRNV in March 1998 from Eureka, California. After two years as a general assignment reporter, Shelby was promoted to the anchor position.
Shelby first became interested in news when she enrolled in her first journalism course Reporting One as a sophomore at the University of Colorado, Boulder. One of Shelby's first assignments was to go out into the community and interview three completely different people. She chose a local politician, a truck driver and a homeless person. That assignment had a profound impact on Shelby and taught her that "people have interesting lives and stories regardless of their backgrounds and that no matter who they are you can always learn good lessons from them."
What Shelby loves most about her job is "knowing that a story or a newscast that she does can have a really positive effect on people's lives." Shelby enjoys stories that inform the community about food drives or when someone is in need or even getting out important information in an emergency situation.
Shelby grew up in Los Altos California, a suburb about 45 minutes south of San Francisco. She is happily married to fellow News 4 anchor Bill Frankmore.
In June of 2005, Bill and Shelby welcomed their first child into the world, and little Ryan Timothy has been keeping them busy ever since. And adding to their joy in February of 2007, was another son named Jack William.
