In a week when newsmen were making news, how appropriate that three Los Angeles newsmen are making real estate news.

Remember when anchor Kent Shocknek got under his desk during a live report as aftershocks from the 1987 Whittier Narrows quake rocked his newsroom?

Although not as earthshaking, a sale is pending on the longtime anchor’s Pasadena house.

The single-level courtyard-style house, built in 1952, is listed at $2.375 million. Set on three-quarters of an acre, the home features floor-to-ceiling windows, three bedrooms, four bathrooms and 3,375 square feet of living space. The guesthouse contains a fourth bedroom. There is a swimming pool, a 537-square-foot pool house and a screened-in gazebo.

Shocknek spent 15 years on “Today in L.A.,” then left in 2001 to do morning news at CBS2. He bought his house in 1996 for $582,500, public records show.

Over to Channel 7, news anchor David Ono is marketing his Toluca Lake house outside the Multiple Listing Service for $2.749 million.

The East Coast-inspired traditional, built in 1936, includes a two-story entry, a family room with a wet bar, a gym/dance studio, stained-glass windows, six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and 5,300 square feet of living space. A swimming pool and a pool pavilion with a brick fireplace and flat-screen television complete the grounds.

Ono has been with ABC7 since 1996. He bought his property in 2005 for $2.175 million.  

Also at Channel 7, weather anchor Garth Kemp has a Moorpark house listed at $995,000.

Set in a gated community, the two-story Spanish-style house contains a formal entry, built-in cabinetry, three fireplaces, five bedrooms, five bathrooms and 4,112 square feet of living space. Kemp paid $899,000 for the home in 2011.

Peter Martocchio and David Goldberg of Sotheby’s International Realty have Shocknek’s listing.

Rick Chimienti of Prudential California Realty is representing Ono and Kemp.
