Randy Shaw is the anchor of KREM 2 News weeknights at 5:00, 6:00, 10:00 and 11:00 and has been a news anchor in the Inland Northwest for more than 30 years. He is the longest running news anchor in Spokane broadcast history.

Randy grew up around Spokane, first on a ranch near Nine Mile Falls and later on the South Hill. He began his career in journalism as a newspaper reporter in the city of Arlington, Virginia, which is located near Washington, D.C., where he covered the Watergate hearings.

His first broadcast job was at WTOP (now WUSA), the CBS affiliate in Washington, D.C. where Randy worked in both radio and television news. He later worked as a network correspondent for Mutual Broadcasting and the Associated Press, where he covered three administrations - Ford, Carter and Reagan - and traveled with then Vice President George Bush. He also had the opportunity to cover international affairs during his work in Washington, covering the visits of Pope John Paul II and Chinese Leader Deng Xiao Peng.

Randy has also covered the OPEC oil ministry and has traveled as a correspondent to Africa and South America. His interest in Africa extends beyond reporting the news. A cultural anthropology buff, Randy has participated in two major expeditions to Africa; the first to live with the Kabre Tribe of Togo - the last of the African slave traders - while the second trip was part of a National Geographic expedition to locate the Tamberma Tribe of northern Benin. For his role in those expeditions Randy was awarded a fellowship in the prestigious Explorers Club in New York and carried the Explorer Club flag on the Tamberma expedition.

During his vast career covering international, national and local news, Randy has garnered more than three dozen individual journalism awards for his work.
