STEPHANIE KOVAC is an award-winning freelance journalist widely respected in the industry as someone who can do it all. A seasoned showrunner, veteran field producer and polished writer, Stephanie has been a driving force behind some of cable television's highest rated and longest running hits, including Forensic Files, Gangland and Ice Cold Killers.
Stephanie's television career began in Miami, Florida where she served as writer/producer for the powerhouse Fox affiliate, WSVN. Within four years, she traded local news for syndication (and the East coast for the West), accepting a segment producer position with the widely emulated entertainment show, Hard Copy.
In 1998, Stephanie formed her own media company, Wishcraft Productions, Inc. Her hard news background has since afforded her the opportunity to be part of the some of the biggest stories of our time, including 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill.
However, Stephanie readily admits no story has ever affected her as deeply as Hurricane Katrina. After spending 18 months on the ground post-Katrina for Fox News Channel, Stephanie chose to relocate and now calls New Orleans home.
She considers South Louisiana the most beautiful place in the world and strongly believes man has a moral obligation to fix what he has destroyed.
