KDFW Fox 4 News Anchor,
Shaun Rabb, to be Keynote Speaker
at MLK Celebration, Monday Night
by: Bobby McDonald
He's a household name, as you invite him into your home via the Fox-4 Nightly News almost every night, but you'll have the opportunity to visit with him personally and learn a number of the things that he enjoys in life. He's Shaun Rabb, Fox-4 News Anchor, and the scheduled keynote speaker for Monday night's MLK Celebration, to be hosted at 7:00 p.m., in Morning Chapel Missionary Baptist Church. The Annual event is sponsored by the East Caney Missionary Baptist Church.
Rabb states that he's got "the best job in the world!" "I absolutely love what I do for a living," says Rabb. "I talk to high school students a lot and tell them that I make a movie, every day! Writing, directing, and producing is a huge responsibility that is not fiction, but rather about people and their lives. These are our neighbors, even if they might be strangers, as we are all a community!"
And, Rabb is the first to tell you, "I love the Lord!" "I'm not ashamed of that and I try to be sensative and compassionate in the stories I tell, asking myself just 'What would Jesus do?' and how would He go about making a difference?"
Rabb denotes that he always wanted to do what he does. "I grew up watching Walter Cronkite on the CBS Evening News, with my grandmother, and I told her then, that's what I wanted to do when I grew up!" continues Rabb. " This was the genesis of my career as a broadcaster, as I would stand by the mirror in our dining room in San Antonio, and imitate Bernard Shaw, Ed Bradley, Roger Mudd, and Walter Cronkite. And, my special grandmother just kept on encouraging me to be anything that I wanted to be!"
You might not know this, Rabb grew up singing in groups in San Antonio, mostly gospel music and has always been active in church. He's currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Divinity. "We're never too old to continue to learn!" state Rabb.
Make your plans to join in the MLK Celebration, on Monday night, and who knows, we might just hear Rabb lend his voice to a gospel song or two, during his presentation!
