Stephanie Maniche – Anchor/Reporter

Stephanie began her career as a multimedia journalist at WBKB-TV in March 2020. She is a native of Oakland, CA and a descendant of Cape Verde Island.  Over the years she has lived in both Los Angeles and New York. Growing up, Stephanie never shied away from a camera or an opportunity to speak in front of a group. She recalls her first speaking engagement in elementary school where she fearlessly went on stage and commanded the room. It wasn’t until years later that she realized her love for telling stories and her interest in people would lead to her becoming a news reporter.

Stephanie earned her Bachelor of Arts in Media Production in June of 2018. Immediately following graduation, she began an internship for the 2018 summer at KRON in San Francisco and was asked to come back in the fall where she stayed until December 2018. Other experience would entail a study-abroad program where she had an opportunity to visit Cuba and interview local residents about everyday life. While living in New York, Stephanie worked in media relations for CBS Television Distribution and also hosted a radio show at Baruch College in Manhattan.

She enjoys planning unique and memorable personal experiences for people as she feels everyone should stop the world and get off for a moment. She plans to open her own personal concierge someday with the tagline “Allow me to take your stress, while you decompress.”   Stephanie’s additional hobbies include shopping, but the fun of that for her is the rare find.
