A NY1 reporter since 1995, Kristen Shaughnessy says the best part of her job is meeting New Yorkers from all walks of life. Wherever in the five boroughs the story takes her, Kristen feels privileged to share the stories of her fellow New Yorkers. The team at NY1 that collaborates and gives their all every day is something that Kristen knows is rare, and something she appreciates on every story.

When not on the anchor desk or in the field, Kristen spends time at home with her college-sweetheart-turned-husband and their two daughters.
