Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

Playing completely unrelated roles is a newer opportunity, but I'll never complain about appearing as a newscaster: after all, half the word 'typecast' is 'cast.'

Trivia:

Shocknek was the original anchor of the first early-morning newscast in Los Angeles, KNBC's "Today in L.A.," starting in 1986. He continued anchoring morning newscasts at KNBC, then at L.A.'s "CBS2 News" without pause until late 2013, before moving to prime-time newscasts on Los Angeles' CBS TV-owned "KCAL9 News at 8 and 10 PM.".
