Shawn Tempesta grew up in Boston, and from an early age had always dreamt of hosting his own television show. At a young age, Shawn entered his local public access TV studio and never looked back! He got his start hosting and interviewing on his own show, “The Show”. From celebrities to locals, he interviewed anyone and everyone he could, and began mastering his craft to reach his goal of getting paid to talk incessantly.
Shawn studied Broadcast Television and Radio, and interned at 4 different television and radio stations. His first professional on-air position was at WLNH-FM in Laconia, New Hampshire, followed by WFHN-FM in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Other professional endeavors included joining the Vegas team on Mix 94.1 as on-air talent and webmaster. Within 2 years, he'd moved into the position of fill-in producer for Mark & Mercedes In The Morning, won multiple Electronic Media Awards, and made the Top 5 in Channel 13’s “Great Las Vegas Traffic Reporter Search”. Other professional items on his roster include broadcasting for WBMX-FM in Boston, co-hosting "The Rhode Show" on WNAC-TV in Rhode Island, and working behind the scenes of American Idol.
Shawn currently lives in the southwest Las Vegas valley. He keeps himself busy, whether it's at “The Morning Blend”, DJing at Mix 94.1, or taking leisurely road trips. His contributions to MYVEGAS Magazine offer his flair for the flavor of local Las Vegas culture.
