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 Honors Connie Terwilliger

Meet #SilverCircle inductee, Connie Terwilliger:

#ConnieTerwilliger is an award-winning producer/writer/voice talent. She started her career in visual media at WTIU-TV in Indiana during graduate school at Indiana University. She parlayed her experience there and her degree to become the first female director at a network television station in San Diego in 1977 – directing such programs as “Let There Be Light” and “Keen’s People,” as well as some nightly newscasts when sports was still A/B roll film.

Shortly after that, she opted out of directing to become the first female booth announcer in San Diego and the voice of News 8 through the mid-80s. She didn’t sound like an “announcer,” so the door kept opening and she quickly became one of the busiest female voiceover talents in San Diego. Her part-time work at Channel 8 afforded her time to develop lasting working relationships with other television stations and production companies throughout the county – both as talent and as a producer/writer for commercials and corporate communications.

During this time, she produced and co-produced multiple Emmy Awards ceremonies including the one at the Globe hosted by the stars of Simon and Simon.

For close to a decade, Connie worked in-house at the Hidden Film Factory in the basement of Building 4 at General Dynamics in Kearny Mesa. She wrote, produced and performed as a company spokesperson and voiceover artist for hundreds of live, film and video projects for nearly every division within the company. From Tomahawks, to Abrams tanks, from Atlas rockets to Trident submarines, from F-16s to Standard missiles. During these years, she had the chance to hire many San Diego television freelancers.

After General Dynamics closed their doors in 1994, she went back out free-lancing and rebooted her dormant voiceover career – and was one of the first to adopt the latest technology – the Internet.

While Connie primarily focuses on voiceover work for commercials, corporate marketing and documentaries, she has also recently started writing again.
