Meet the Team

Stephanie Liebergen

Senior Editor

After years as a television newscast producer, Stephanie wanted something different, so she decided to jump to the web world and joined Newsy in February 2016. From breaking news to stories about anything cute and furry, she writes it all. She spent the last two years working in Sacramento, but as a Kansas City native and University of Wisconsin - Madison grad, she is ready for all the crazy weather the Midwest brings. When not in the newsroom, she spends time with her boyfriend and dog, enjoys a good bottle of wine, and cheers for her favorite sports teams!
