Stacia Naquin comes to ABC 6/FOX 28 from 12 News in Phoenix, where she anchored the 4pm news and served as the station’s consumer investigative reporter, exposing bad business practices and saving the people of Arizona millions of dollars.
An award-winning breaking news anchor and reporter, Stacia has covered stories from across the country, including the Aurora Theater shooting, Prince Harry’s visit to the United States and Super Bowl XLIX. She reported live from her home state of Oklahoma after a deadly tornado made its way through Moore, taking viewers inside the cleanup and recovery efforts. She has anchored extended breaking news coverage during the Arizona freeway shootings, deadly wildfires in Colorado and reported from the hardest-hit neighborhoods during the “Flood of the Century” in Phoenix.
Growing up a Navy brat in an Army town (Lawton/Ft. Sill, Oklahoma), Stacia continues to stay connected to the military community. A long-time volunteer with the USO, she served as the Chair of the Advisory Council for USO Arizona and raised thousands of dollars for the expansion of the Rocky Mountain USO facility on Fort Carson.
She also earned the prestigious “Commander’s Award for Public Service” from the Department of the Army for serving as an instructor and developing a course in interpersonal communication for Fort Carson’s Transition University, a pilot program focused on assisting soldiers with their transition to civilian life.
She has a Masters in Communication from the University of Oklahoma.
After enjoying adventures and temperatures in Phoenix, Stacia and her husband are excited to be in Columbus and much closer to her parents who live outside of Akron.
