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.
