As a reporter, the September 11th terrorist attacks stand out as the most memorable story she has covered. Kristen Shaughnessy was at the World Trade Center after the planes hit and was forced to interrupt her live report and run when the first tower came down. To mark the 15th anniversary, she did a six part series on what happened within NY1 after the first plane hit the towers.

Prior to NY1, KristenShaughnessy worked as an anchor/reporter at WGNY radio in Newburgh, NY and at NewsCenter 6 in Poughkeepsie. 

Her husband, Joe Bush, is the Head Golf Pro at Shackamaxon Country Club. They have two daughters, Jamie and Kara.

Special Event: Installation of IBO Grand Marshal Dolores Walsh & Aides Martin Dunne, Attracta Lyndon, and Sean McNeill for the 257th NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade.
