Stephanie Guadian wakes up with you every morning as an anchor of the highly rated “KFOX Morning News Show” from 5 to 8 a.m. She is an award-winning journalist who joined the KFOX news team in October of 2009. It was a move that brought her home. Stephanie grew up in Las Cruces and is thrilled to be back doing what she loves near the people she loves.
Stephanie comes to KFOX from KTRK in Houston. Prior to KTRK, she worked for the NBC affiliate in San Francisco and KTVK in Phoenix. Her career has taken her across the country and the world. She’s interviewed thousands of newsmakers.
The most exciting – and dangerous – job of her career to date was embedding with U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Stephanie spent nearly a month with troops from the 31st Combat Support Hospital based at Fort Bliss. Her journey took her to Herat, Kabul, Helmand Province, Kandahar and Mazar-i-Sharif. Stephanie says her role as a war-zone reporter was by far her most challenging and rewarding reporting.
She spent weeks in hurricane-ravaged New Orleans gathering stories on Katrina and the storm’s aftermath. Stephanie was also on the front lines as Hurricane Rita came ashore. Other stories have taken her to Mexico for the history of Cinco de Mayo and a series of reports on Doctors without Borders.
Stephanie enjoys giving back to her community. She gives her time to various charitable organizations and animal welfare leagues. In her spare time she loves to travel and meet new people. She likes to stay active by kickboxing, running and playing racquetball. She also loves to read, watch sci-fi movies and hang out with her dog Susie. Above all, she enjoys spending time with friends and family. She is the eldest of three girls and remains very close to her loved ones.
