Brian Sheehan is an award-winning reporter who is thrilled to continue his career in the Harrisburg area.
Prior to joining CBS21 in October 2018, Sheehan spent nearly two-years as a Multimedia Journalist for FOX56 in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton television market. He also hosted a local TV show, “Closer Look with Brian Sheehan” that featured different organizations around northeastern Pennsylvania.
While at FOX, Sheehan traveled to Washington, D.C. to “one-man-band” the inauguration of President Donald Trump. He also covered the Eric Frein capital murder trial, which resulted in a jury sentencing the convicted killer to death.
In April 2018, Sheehan was recognized by the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters for his “outstanding feature report” on the state’s foster care system.
Sheehan began his on-air career as a reporter, producer, and anchor at WHSV-TV in Harrisonburg, Virginia. He also worked as the executive producer and host for The Daily Meal in New York City.
When Sheehan is not busy chasing the latest story, you can find him spending time with his family, friends, and Goldendoodle, Sophie.
He spends his summer at his family beach house at the Jersey Shore.
