Stacie Schaible is an Emmy nominated anchor of “First at 4” and News Channel 8 at 6pm, weeknights, on WFLA TV.
Best part of your job? The people and constantly learning. I love being out and about in the community and I love asking questions. Anchoring the news is only part of my job. I am very involved in a lot of Bay area charities and try to give back to this awesome community whenever I can. I’ve also done a lot of consumer and investigative reporting since joining the News Channel Eight team in January of 2000.
Where did you Grow up? Mankato, Minnesota. I knew at some point in middle school that I was interested in News and really geared my education in that direction. I graduated from the University of Minnesota and my first job was as a News Reporter at KDLH-TV in Duluth, MN. I eventually was named the main evening anchor at that station. I also anchored at WDAY in Fargo, ND and KXAN in Austin, TX.
Favorite Story: 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.
What do you do in your spare time? I have a son and daughter who both keep me very busy. We love to travel and explore new places so when I do have time off, we are usually off on an adventure somewhere. I also love to golf and hang at the beach.
