Sean McLaughlin: Local Celebrity by Day – Daddy by Night

We began 20 sentences that each person finished in their own words. Here’s what KPHO CBS 5 News Anchor/Meteorologist had to say about his full-house family, biggest hosting dream and everything in between.

Name: Sean McLaughlin
Age: I work with enough ladies in the newsroom to know NOT to ask…does that fly?
Title: News anchor/meteorologist
Married/Single: Married
Kids: Four-two boys/two girls all under 8 years old. Pray for me…
Live: Phoenix

I was born…

in a small town in Iowa with one stoplight. No kidding… 55 of us in my graduating class.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is its amazing beauty with so many diverse areas to explore and enjoy.

I’m listening to…

my t-v of course. But also enjoy cranking up  Matt Nathanson, Kenny Chesney and classic U2/John Cougar/ Journey.

My family…

is what grounds me and makes me complete. I swear that’s not a line from Jerry Maguire…is it?

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Johnny Carson…in a heartbeat.

One thing I cannot live without…

consistent food consumption. If I skip a meal I become a lunatic…

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a pilot until I hit calculus. Then it was hello creative speaking!

I’m inspired by…

people who sacrifice daily to be better parents.

The one person who motivates me is…

the person who doubts me.

If could change anything in the world, it would be…

stop neglecting children. Don’t become a parent until you are ready & then you have to be all in…for life.

The perfect day would be…

After sleeping in (a guy can dream) having a fun, full day with the kids that includes lunch outside and a short nap while watching football. Lots of laughs at bedtime. In comes our favorite babysitter,  then a great dinner/drinks and movie with my smoking hot wife.

My first job was…

walking beans (pulling weeds out of the fields) and cleaning a beauty salon. It was the ‘80’s…so all of that perm product smelled like *@^#$!

My favorite escape…

is on the beach, ANY beach with my wife and kids.

My life…

for a small town Iowa boy has been one great adventure after the next.

I’m currently working on…

being more patient with my children. But that little two year old keeps playin’ me!

Always…

take time to realize every day ALIVE is a bonus.

Never…

run from a challenge.

Favorite Quote…

“210-220…whatever it takes. Do you want a beer? It’s 7 o’clock in the morning. Scotch?”

Biggest Dream…

would love to host Saturday Night Live or the Oscars.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who don’t tip well. Don’t be  cheap…it’s bad karma.
