Emmy award-winner Stacey Bell serves as co-anchor for NBC 4 New York’s 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekday newscasts. Bell brings a wealth of journalistic and compassionate storytelling to her second stint at NBC 4 New York, where she previously served as a weekend anchor.
Stacey began her career in Texarkana, Texas, where she was anchor/reporter for television stations: KTBS; KTAL and the CBS affiliate KSLA News 12 in Shreveport, Louisiana. Prior to joining NBC 4 New York, Bell served as an anchor for News 12 Long Island between 2012 and 2014.
Bell spent more than a decade at WJW FOX 8 News in Cleveland, Ohio, where after two years of 4 a.m. wake-up calls and standing out in frigid temperatures to report for the city's top-ranked morning show, she took over co-anchor duties of the 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. news. Within a year, Bell and her co-anchor took the 5 p.m. newscast to the No. 1 spot for the first time in the station's history.
Bell received two Emmy Awards for her work on “Neighborhood,” a Fox 8 public service program. She says, "It was an honor to have been the recipient of the Ohio State Broadcasters Associations Personality of the Year award, however, the biggest reward was that viewers felt as though they knew me personally.”
Bell holds a bachelor’s degree in mass communications with a minor in English from the University of Central Arkansas and is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
Bell’s work with the Malone Scholarship Fund in Ohio helped raise thousands of dollars to send deserving students to college. She served as a resource and mentor to young women interested in pursuing a career in journalism.
When she is not covering news she enjoys Manhattan restaurants and spending time with her family and dog Scooter.
