Achieving the right balance between work and family life is what Stephanie Roberts ultimately strives for—and with ABC 7 and Good Morning Suncoast, she says she has found it! Stephanie has worked in morning television for over 15 years, and despite the 2:30am wake-up time, she says it is truly her favorite time of day for news. "I love being able to wake people up with the information they need to plan their day. I naturally have a lot of energy and a quick wit, so I hope to use it to help get everyone going in the morning—with a smile!"
Stephanie has worked in major markets as both a news anchor and a meteorologist and will be filling both roles at ABC 7. Born and raised in Chicago, Stephanie has a journalism degree from Penn State and a meteorology certification from Mississippi State University. She also holds seals from both the National Weather Association and the American Meteorological Society. Stephanie has anchored at stations in Rochester, MN; Toledo, OH; Cleveland, OH and Tampa. Additionally, she has made numerous appearances on Good Morning America as their guest weather anchor. She even serves as a guest host on the Home Shopping Network from time to time.
Off the set, Stephanie's hair goes into a ponytail as she heads out to the sports fields with her children. Her daughter Reagan, 13, is a travel soccer player, plays flag football and is active in FFA. Her son Ryan, 9, pitches for a travel baseball team, plays linebacker and kicks for his youth football team and also plays piano. When she's not driving her children around, Stephanie is out chasing their new chocolate Goldendoodle puppy Griffin, named after Robert Griffin III. The family shares a love of all sports, especially college football—though they don't all root for the same teams! Stephanie and her children love the lifestyle here on the Suncoast and enjoy visiting area beaches, biking, fishing and gardening.
