NewsChannel 9 hires new sports reporter

SYRACUSE — NewsChannel 9 (WSYR-TV) is looking west towards “cheesehead territory” to fill a vacancy in its sports department. The station says Shannon Shepherd will be moving from WSAU-TV in Wausau, Wisconsin to join the Nexstar-owned ABC affiliate at the end of this month.

Our thanks to NewsChannel 9 news director Rob Cartwright for the update on the search to replace Lindsay Liquori, who recently left Syracuse for Florida, where her fiancé recently took a new job.

Cartwright says Shepherd has “extensively” covered the NFL’s Green Bay Packers and various Wisconsin Badgers teams during her year and a half in Wausau, and she’s “looking forward to getting up to speed quickly as the [Syracuse] Orange [basketball team] make their NCAA Tournament run.”

Shepherd, a graduate of Saint Bonaventure University, has relatives in Buffalo. Cartwright says she’ll start working in Syracuse on January 30, alongside sports director Steve Infanti and sports anchor/reporter Sal Maneen.
