Stephanie Funkhouser joined Fox 17 in October of 2016 and can be seen anchoring sports on the weekends and reporting during the week.
A Chicago native, Stephanie grew up an avid sports fan, playing soccer, basketball, and sofball. Staying in the Midwest to attend the University of Michigan, she found her passion for sports broadcasting, majoring in Sport Management and minoring in Spanish.
Her first job was working as a co-host and producer for the State Champs High School Sports Show, Sundays at 9am on Fox Sports Detroit. Stephanie has also done sideline reporting for USSSA baseball on MLB.com, filled-in as the in-stadium host for the Detroit Red Wings, been a fill-in anchor for the Detroit Sports News on CBS62, a freelance sideline reporter for the Big Ten Network, and a sideline reporter for Oakland University basketball on ESPN3.
When she isn’t talking or watching sports, Stephanie can be found following her love for food and fitness!
