Executive Assistant to Ken Lindner

One of the best discoveries that Ken has ever made, was hiring his Executive Assistant, Shari Freis. Ken worked with Shari for over fifteen years, when Shari was the extraordinarily effective assistant to the long line of KCBS News Directors. It is, in great part, because of Shari and her wonderful organizational and people skills, that Ken has been able to be as effective as he has been over the last few years.

Shari was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Colorado at Boulder, with a degree in Psychology and Secondary Education. After teaching high school for a year, she fulfilled her life-long dream of moving to California. A professed “news junkie” since college, Shari won an RTNA of Southern California Golden Mike Award in 1994, for her work on KCBS-TV’s continuous coverage of the Northridge earthquake.

When not traveling (Shari’s number one passion!), she can be seen hiking in the hills above Los Angeles. Her most recent feat was hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. She also enjoys going to movies, concerts, and the opera, and is an avid Denver Broncos fan. An important part of Shari’s life is her volunteer work with Concern Foundation, a charity dedicated to funding cancer research worldwide.
