Stacie Schaible's LinkedIn page reads: TV News Anchor, Investigative Journalist, Consumer Advocate, Public Speaker and Connector. I would also vote to add "stand up comedianne" and inspiring Mom. I've heard her speak several times. Where news is all about neutral delivery of facts, Stacie also has a natural and cheeky sense of comedic timing and a true love for people and stories. She is someone you want to know, and you want to be on her radar. If news happens that involves your industry, how to you ensure that Stacie and her news team call you first to get your professional take from a local perspective? How do you become that go-to person for the media when they suddenly need a professional, authoritative perspective or interview?

ABOUT THE CONTRIBUTOR:
Stacie Schaible is the Emmy-nominated News Anchor of “First at 4” and News Channel 8 at 6pm, weeknights, on WFLA-TV.
Stacie loves meeting people and is constantly learning. She enjoys being out and about in the community and asking questions. Anchoring the news is only part of her job. Stacie is very involved in a lot of Bay area charities and tries to give back to this awesome community whenever she can. She has also done a lot of consumer and investigative reporting since joining the News Channel 8 team in January of 2000.
Stacie grew up in Mankato, Minnesota. She knew at some point in middle school that she was interested in news and geared her education in that direction. She graduated from the University of Minnesota and her first job was as a News Reporter at KDLH-TV in Duluth, MN. She eventually was named the main evening anchor at that station. She also anchored at WDAY in Fargo, ND and KXAN in Austin, TX.
Stacie's favorite news story (in her words): This 2015 Stanley Cup run by the Lightning stands out. There’s nothing like a great sports team to bring the community together. And since the Cup run is a marathon, not a sprint, our coverage was pretty intense. I was very proud of our dedicated team. I made a road trip, anchoring our coverage of the Stanley Cup Final in Chicago and that was definitely a high point.
In her spare time, Stacie has a son and daughter who keep her very busy. Her family loves to travel and explore new places so when she does have time off, they are usually off on an adventure somewhere. She also loves to golf and hang at the beach.
