Get To Know WDIV Shawn Ley! His Age, Family, Still Married?

So, on January 22, 2023, Sandra Ali announced she was leaving after anchoring WDIV (Channel 4) for over a decade. Prior to that, she covered the 6pm and 11pm weekly news for Detroit’s WDIV for 13 years. Saying goodbye to the audience, she said she is grateful for all the lifelong friendships she has made while working at WDIV, and that she will continue to look for the next great new opportunity. So, just like that, the 2002 AP Award winner is in her way of being transparent about her career. Her private life, on the other hand, has been pretty low-key, especially after she and her husband Sean Ley seemingly separated. Let us tell you more about Shawn in this article titled “WDIV Shawn Ley Bio”.

Meet Sandra Ali’s Husband, Shawn Ley

Sandra Ali married fellow journalist Shawn Ley in 2006 at Hills Country Club in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The two met when Sean got a job in Detroit, where Sandra was living and working at the time. A year after their first meeting, they met again when Sean stumbled across Sandra’s house, which she was selling at the time. Then it was Sean who took the unexpected reunion as a signal to ask Sandra out. The latter of course agreed, and here they fast-forward to early 2023, rumored to be splitting up.

The couple has four children. Their first son, Roman, was born in 2010. Then, their daughter Isla was born, followed by twins Grant and Tamer.

While adjusting to balance work and family responsibilities, Sean and his wife are often seen appreciating each other’s devotion to their marriage and children. Sandra has also praised her husband on more than one occasion for keeping his business afloat while dealing with all their kids and their “dirty diapers.”

Is Shawn Ley on WDIV Still Married?

When Shawn Ley’s mother died in 2020, her obituary no longer mentioned Shawn’s wife, although it mentioned his brother and his wife. So, they likely separated before then.

Also, the following year, fans discussed not seeing Sandra wearing her wedding ring. That same year, it was also revealed that the couple had filed for divorce in November 2019. So, as of now, they are believed to be keeping it a secret from the public.

As of January 2023, the divorce has neither been confirmed nor denied.

The last time Sandra posted about Sean on social media was in 2018, and Sean’s account doesn’t have any recent photos of them either. However, they both continued to share photos of their kids and work-related stuff.

But all of that seems to be a thing of the past now, as Sandra no longer has the title “wife” on her social media bio. She’s been going around as a “mom of 4 babies + twin boys” for a while now.
