Emmy award-winner Stacey Bell serves as co-anchor for NBC 4 New York’s 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekday newscasts. She 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.
Prior to joining NBC 4 New York, Bell served as an anchor for News 12 Long Island between 2012 and 2014. She previously spent more than a decade at WJW FOX 8 News in Cleveland, Ohio.
After two years of 4 a.m. wake-up calls and battling frigid temperatures to report Cleveland’s top-ranked morning show, Bell took over co-anchor duties of the 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. news. Within a year, the 5 p.m. newscast took the No. 1 spot for the first time in the station's history. Bell was also awarded with two local Emmys for her work on “Neighborhood,” a Fox 8 public service program.
Bell 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. She holds a bachelor’s degree in mass communications with a minor in English from the University of Central Arkansas.
An active community volunteer, Bell frequently serves as a mentor and to young women interested in pursuing careers in journalism. Her work with the Malone Scholarship Fund in Ohio also helped raise thousands of dollars to send deserving students to college.
When she is not covering news she enjoys Manhattan restaurants and spending time with her family and dog Scooter.
