Stacy joined the WREG team as a general assignment reporter in October 2016.

She has thoroughly enjoyed making Memphis her home and exploring a city with so much history and character. She loves the local opportunities to learn more about music and civil rights in the very place where a lot of those moments took place as well as the chance to stroll along the scenic and historic Mississippi River.

Stacy came to the Mid-South from another Southern city rich with history; she spent four years working as a reporter and fill-in anchor at WCIV-TV in Charleston, South Carolina. There, Stacy cultivated her passion for storytelling and serving her community as a journalist while covering seminal stories including the Emanuel AME Church shooting, the Confederate flag removal from the Statehouse, the Walter Scott shooting and historic flooding. The Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas honored Stacy as Reporter of the Year in 2015.

Before Charleston, Stacy worked as a weekend anchor and reporter at WBOY-TV in Clarksburg, West Virginia for two years. While in college, she interned in her hometown of Baltimore at local news stations WJZ and WBFF.

Stacy is a proud graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. She graduated with degrees in both journalism and political science. Outside of work, she enjoys rooting on her hometown Ravens, traveling and doing yoga. She’s also passionate about giving back to the community through volunteer work including MIFA and the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.
