Today’s #MediaMonday features Stephanie Olmo, a weather anchor and reporter at Fox 10 Phoenix.
Stephanie, time to share!
Ever since I was young, I would ask A LOT of questions. Oftentimes family members would joke saying, “You should be a news reporter.” Never really thought about it until I was in high school.
I went on to Penn State and pursued broadcast journalism. I became a part of the student newscast, reported on different events on campus, and interned for the syndicated morning radio program called “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.” After I graduated, I headed to China for two months and interned at International Channel Shanghai.
When I got back to the states, I landed a job at AccuWeather as a radio broadcaster. I eventually transitioned from radio to television after nine months. It was during my time there when I became intrigued with weather and the science of the atmosphere. I decided to head back to school for meteorology and enrolled in Mississippi State University’s online program. I have less than a year left (YAY).
At FOX 10 I get to do a little bit of both, reporting and weather. I report Wednesdays – Fridays and weather anchor on the weekends. I have a segment that airs every Thursday called “Olmost The Weekend” where I preview weekend events in the Valley. I’m grateful to work for a station that allows me to be myself every day.
When I’m not working or studying, I like to cook/bake, dance, spend time with friends, and explore the beautiful Arizona.
One thing readers would be surprised to know about me is I’m a twin, however we don’t look alike. We’re fraternal, so we can’t fool ya! Haha!
Favorite Music: I honestly listen to everything from Latin music, hip-hop to alternative rock. I’ll jam to anything and everything.
Favorite color is purple.
I love pizza and tacos. My weaknesses are cupcakes and donuts. My least favorite food is seafood.
