Stacey Delikat is an Emmy Award-winning journalist currently based in New York City. Stacey’s career in news started on the assignment desk of CNN’s New York office after college, but her passion for the business began long before then. She has a bachelor’s degree in communications from Cornell University and a master’s degree in broadcasting from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
Since September 2012 Stacey has been a freelance reporter for Fox 5 New York, covering stories including Hurricane Sandy, the aftermath of the Newtown shootings and local New York City News. She has also filled in on the Good Day Wake Up Anchor desk. She returns to New York after spending three years in Phoenix.
As a member of “Arizona’s Family” at BELO-owned KTVK, 3TV, she was a lead reporter for 3TV’s nightly broadcasts. Among the major stories Stacey covered in Arizona: the Tucson massacre, SB1070 and the origins of Operation Fast and Furious. She regularly reported on Arizona’s politics and policy-making, and covered all aspects of the state’s controversial immigration law. Stacey had a regular segment on the weekly “Politics Unplugged” program, called “Sidebar,” in which she profiled interesting people, policies and campaign strategies. While in Arizona, Stacey covered stories she never imagined she would work on back East, like wildfires, monsoon storms, and seemingly never-ending triple-digit heat!
Before moving to the Valley of the Sun, Stacey spent more than two years as a one-woman-band reporter for News 12, a 24-hour cable news station in New York City. There, she canvassed the streets of Brooklyn and the Bronx, doing all of her own camera work and editing. She regularly filled in on the weekend anchor desk.

While in graduate school, Stacey was a Washington correspondent for CBS-affiliate WCAX in Burlington, Vermont. Stacey’s first experience in broadcasting came through internships with CNNfn and NY1 news.
