Stephanie Stone
Stephanie joined the ABC 30 Action News Team in February of 2012. She's happy to be back in her home state and happy to call the valley her new home!

The past ten years in broadcast news have taken her around the state and country. After graduating from the University of California at Santa Barbara, Stephanie landed her first job in Eureka, where she worked as a reporter, photographer, producer and anchor.

She then travelled to south Texas, where she was a bureau reporter on the border between Mexico and the United States. She was honored by the Lone Star Emmy chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and the Texas Associated Press Broadcasters for her investigation into a fake charity and for her work on a documentary exposing educators with criminal backgrounds.

Most recently, Stephanie reported in Cincinnati, Ohio. She grew to love the Midwest's snow storms, tornados and political battlegrounds. Stephanie reported from the tarmac when President Obama landed Air Force One in the region, and she exposed the human trafficking corridor between Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.

When she's not digging for news Stephanie and her husband enjoy spending time with family and friends and are continually working towards their next half marathon.
