Stephanie Chuang joined NBC Bay Area in January 2012 as a Special Projects & General Assignment Reporter. The East Bay native grew up in Fremont and Pleasanton, and graduated as a proud Warrior from Mission San Jose High School before heading off to Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in Chicago.
Stephanie began her career in Topeka, Kansas as a “one-woman-band” reporter as part of a college on-air internship – shooting, writing, and editing stories by herself. After Northwestern, she moved back to California, where she was an anchor and reporter at NBC affiliate KSBW in Salinas. During her time on the Central Coast she reported on a variety of topics; from a school district mired in controversy, to interviewing celebrities at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Before joining NBC Bay Area, she worked briefly as a morning show reporter at another Bay Area TV station.
Stephanie feels fortunate to be home – pursuing a career she loves. Off the air, she enjoys participating in and emceeing various community events. And as an active member and former board member of the Asian American Journalists Association in San Francisco she enjoys mentoring aspiring journalists.
