WCBS Reporter Headed Back to School


WCBS Reporter Sean Hennessey is ankling his way out the door at WCBS in New York.

 But Hennessey isn't headed for another job in TV news, he's going back to college. Not to study, but to teach. 

FishbowlNY reports he's headed to Boston College, which makes sense for the BC graduate. He got his B.A. in English in 1987 at the Chestnut Hill campus, according to his LinkedIn page. Hennessey returned to Boston College in 2001, attending the Wallace Carroll School of Management.

A general assignment reporter, Hennessey joined WCBS in March 2007. He’s covered numerous high-profile stories, including the NYPD “Cannibal Cop” trial last week. Prior to arriving in New York, Hennessey worked 11 years for WHDH in Boston.

A WCBS spokesperson has confirmed Hennessey’s last day is Friday and adds, “the WCBS family wishes Sean the best as he starts his new career as an associate editor of news and public affairs at Boston College.”
