Stacy Lange


Stacy is a local girl. She grew up in Clarks Summit, Lackawanna County.

She joined the WNEP news team in July, 2011 first covering central Pennsylvania. Now she is the Lackawanna County beat reporter.

Stacy comes to Newswatch 16 from WWNY-TV in Watertown, NY where she was a "one-man-band," shooting, writing, and editing her own stories. There she covered the Thousand Islands region of New York, and the 10th Mountain Division of the Army based at Fort Drum.

Stacy honed her skills at Syracuse University where she graduated magna cum laude in 2010 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. In college, she was a member of the nation's oldest and largest entirely student-run TV station, CitrusTV.

Before her TV days, Stacy was on the 50-yard line as "Miss Comet" with the Abington Heights Marching Band. She's a sports "phanatic." She likes to cheer on all the Philadelphia sports teams and her beloved Orange.

When she's not working, Stacy is a judge and coach for Odyssey of the Mind teams in NEPA. Stacy lives with her cat, Utley.
