Scott Shannon Family | Parents

Scott was born on July 25, 1947, in St. Louis, Missouri, and grew up an Army brat in Indianapolis, Indiana. He started his radio career during his own Army stint at WFBS (1450 AM) in Spring Lake, North Carolina (later WMRV). From there he moved to WCLS (1580 AM) in Columbus, Georgia. After leaving the Army, Shannon operated full-time in radio at WABB in Mobile, Alabama, where he acquired the name Super Shan.

After a brief stint at WMPS in Memphis, he moved to Nashville, where he was the evening disc jockey at WMAK (1300 AM), later becoming that station’s program director. While at WMAK, interactions and an interview between Shannon and Neil Young were recorded for Young’s film Journey Through the Past.

Scott Shannon Wife | Daughter

Shannon is married to Trish Angeli. The two always celebrate their love life spending time together and going on dinner dates. Shannon tweeted about a valentine’s week with his wife on 16th February 2016, which reflected that the couple has a happy married life. The two are blessed with a daughter, Kathleen. Though Scott mentions his wife once in a while on his social media, he does not post pictures with his wife as much as he does it with his daughter.

Scott Shannon Radio

On February 25, 2014, WCBS-FM (CBS-FM) in New York announced that Scott would be hosting a brand new morning show entitled Scott Shannon in the Morning starting March 3, 2014. Upon the release of the first run of ratings after Scott took over at WCBS-FM, his show was rated number one, although most of the audience was already established since CBS-FM was doing very well ratings-wise before Shannon’s arrival. He carried over the “Big Show” name from WPLJ.

United Stations Radio Networks announced in October 2014, that Scott would host their new syndicated radio program Scott Shannon Presents America’s Greatest Hits, a four-hour classic hits program featuring music of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.

Features include special countdowns on various topics or from the particular week from a past year, artist interviews, and other features such as one-hit wonders and hit cover versions of previous hit recordings.  The new program premiered the weekend of November 1, 2014.

Scott is also the host of the True Oldies Channel radio network and is the announcer for talk radio’s The Sean Hannity Show.

Scott Shannon The Morning Zoo

Scot is particularly known within the broadcasting industry for his work creating the “morning zoo” concept which debuted in Tampa in the early 1980s on WRBQ. The Q Morning Zoo show with Scott and Cleveland Wheeler was the template for hundreds of morning shows across America using the concept and name. For a period of time the trademark for the name “Morning Zoo” was owned by Edens Broadcasting, the owners of WRBQ that period.

He then took the concept to startup WHTZ (Z100) in New York City in the early 1980s. Along with former disc jockey Ross Brittain of WABC’s Ross & Wilson Show, he founded the Z Morning Zoo. He was the driving force in helping Z100 become the top-rated FM station in New York City within a mere 74 days of signing on the air. During this period, he served as one of the original VJs on VH1.

Scott Shannon Awards

Scot is one of several disc jockeys honored in an exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. FMQB, a radio trade magazine in 2000, named Scott “Program Director of the Century”.

He was inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame in Washington, D.C., in 2003 and he was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in Chicago in 2006. Scott was named Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year at the 2010 National Association of Broadcasters’ Marconi Radio Awards in September 2010.
