Shelby Shepherd officially joined the KWQC family in May 2015. But it’s wasn’t her first time in the TV6 newsroom.

During her senior year at St. Ambrose University, Shelby was an intern for the Highlight Zone, and the news team. Before interning at KWQC, Shelby also spent time interning for WHBF, and freelance writing for the Quad City Times.

She graduated from St. Ambrose in Davenport with a double major in Journalism and Radio/TV production, in May 2015. Shelby fell in love with journalism in high school working for her school paper, and has been exploring all types of news mediums since.

During college she worked for the school’s radio and TV stations, and became editor-in-chief of the university’s bi-weekly newspaper.

Although originally from the suburbs of Chicago, Shelby has loved calling the Quad Cities home for the past four years, and is excited explore the area even more.

Shelby loves telling people’s stories and would love to hear from you.
