Silver Circle Honors Shawn Styles

Meet #SilverCircle inductee, Shawn Styles:

#ShawnStyles is a San Diego native and life-long surfer.

Styles’ love of surfing opened the door to his broadcast career. During the winter storms, when he could not surf, Styles discovered skiing, which lead to his move to Park City, Utah, at the age of 19.

After spending three winters there, Styles became a mountain guide for the Park City Ski Resort. Bringing on air snow reports to East Coast cities, including Boston, New York and Washington, DC, was a part of his job.

Upon returning to San Diego in 1983, he noticed a new radio station on the air: 91X. There were no surf reports on local radio stations at the time, so Styles made a phone call, offered to produce his own daily surf report and within a week, he was on the air delivering two daily surf reports.

The following summer, Styles approached KGTV 10 about including a surf report in Captain Mike’s weather broadcast. A week later, he was on the air. While at KGTV, Styles was part of the weather team and produced adventure travel features, as well as cooking and gardening segments.

In 1996, Styles moved to CBS 8 – San Diego Newsas weekend weather anchor and lifestyle reporter. Known for his breaking news reports, Styles is an AMS -certified Meteorologist and Emmy-Award recipient.

Silver Circle Inductee Joe Riddle

Joe Riddlejoe-riddle

Joe grew up in San Diego and in 1978, went to work in radio as a News Director and DJ in Yuma, Arizona. From there it was stints in Palm Springs and then Bakersfield. In 1986, he made the switch to television… on a dare.

A co-worker at the radio station, where Joe was Program Director, challenged him to try out for a weekend weather/reporter position at KERO-TV. He got the job, but it was when he filled in for a vacationing producer that Joe came into his own. A short time and multiple Golden Mics later, Joe was offered an opportunity to return to his hometown of San Diego as a producer at KGTV, Channel 10. After four years there, Joe moved into newsroom management, working at stations in Des Moines and Las Vegas.

He returned to San Diego and KUSI-TV, in 1998. He has been the Executive Producer there ever since. Joe is a multiple Emmy Award recipient and Golden Mike winner.

Silver Circle Inductee Paul Rudy

Congratulations to 2016 Silver Circle inductee Paul Rudy.Paul Rudy

Born and raised in Bloomington, Minnesota, young Paul Rudy was a professional tennis instructor who one afternoon gave a tennis lesson to the News Director at WKOW-TV of Madison Wisconsin.  That 30-minute lesson turned into a 32 year television career.

After bluffing his way through an interview, Rudy was hired as a news photographer, but when the video on his first assignment turned out a frightening shade of blue, Rudy was demoted to Sports.

Seven stations and three time zones later, he landed in California, where in the spring of 1998 he turned up at the doorstep of KUSI News in San Diego.  In 1999, Rudy suggested expanding the station’s sportscast into what became The Prep Pigskin Report.  The one-of-a-kind high school football show has since won seven Emmys and launched dozens of broadcast careers.  The “PPR” has become a Friday night staple in San Diego television.

“A lot of stations do sports shows,” Rudy says, “but in my opinion, what we do with PPR is unmatched anywhere in the nation.  Every Friday night we turn highlights from 40 local games, throw in countless features, and you have the fastest 65 minutes in television!”

Silver Circle Inductee Darcey Gulen

Congratulations to 2016 Silver Circle inductee Darcey Gulen.Darcey Gulen

Darcey Gulen is NBC 7 San Diego’s longest tenured employee at 42 years. During this time, she’s shepherded and nurtured more television careers behind the scenes than probably anyone in town.

Gulem started out as secretary to the business manager at the station when it was Storer Broadcasting and Company. Before that, she worked with the San Diego Padres.

The cornerstone of the station, Gulen has been through two station moves, more owner and GM changes than you can count and technology changes from paper to the “cloud.”

“When disaster strikes, she feeds the station, protects the safety of crew and finds a place for us to land when our neighborhoods are evacuated,” says NBC 7 San Diego’s Assistant News Director, Chuck Westerheide, a Silver Circle member. “Her reach goes far beyond the walls of our station.”
