Shardae LaRae is engaged


Shardae LaRae recently received a big surprise during the CBS19 KYTX Tyler noon newscast when her boyfriend Tamaron walked in to propose leaving the stunned anchor to ask "are we on air?"

"I'm going to switch the roles for a second, I'm going to ask you an interview question, OK," now  fiancĂ© Tamaron asked LaRae while pulling out the ring and getting on one knee.

With East Texas viewers at home and the couple's family off to the side of the studio set watching, LaRae responded with "Of course!" to the live engagement.

LaRae recently told mikemcguff.com that her co-workers helped make the live event happen:


"I’m still on cloud 9 after finding out I’ll be marrying the man of my dreams. I was very very shocked when the surprise happened and the fact that my amazing News Director Kristy Nation and my co-anchor Chandlor Jordan helped him pull it all off is amazing!

 Lol When I was on air I was clearly trying to read the prompter but noticed it wasn’t scrolling so I just started ad-libbing the script and as you can see in the clip I looked over and *bloop* there he was! 

I instantly felt like I was floating because at that moment I knew why he was there. Once I saw my family trailing in the studio behind him I was so floored and overwhelmed with emotion. 

Right now we are looking at a late Fall or early Spring wedding in 2024. Gotta see what city my next market will take me!" 


LaRae, who anchors KYTX's "The Morning Loop" and "The Noon Show on CBS19" joined the station in 2021.
