Evening Anchor

Stacy Steinhagen joined the KEYC team in October 2010.

She earned a journalism degree from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Before coming to KEYC, she worked behind the scenes at WCCO-TV in Minneapolis. Her on-air start was at the NBC affiliate in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Stacy loves her job and loves serving the viewers of southern Minnesota. She says the best part is the opportunity she has to give back. With the American Cancer Society, Stacy serves on the South Central Leadership Team and the State Leadership Board. She also volunteers with Mankato Area Public Schools, S.S. Boutique, and the Mankato Area Symphony Orchestra.

Growing up in Waconia, to her core, she's a proud Minnesotan (brutal winters and all) and knows she's very lucky to be at home!
