Growing up in Carrollton, Texas, Stephanie Malone would watch weather forecasts with her dad. He would explain to her the meanings of high pressure and cold fronts, and since the age of eight, Malone has wanted to be a meteorologist. An internship at WFAA in Dallas confirmed that she wanted to inform people about the weather.
Malone moved north of the Red River to attend the University of Oklahoma and received a Bachelors of Science degree in meteorology with a minor in broadcast meteorology and mathematics. During her time at OU, Malone interned at News 9 and learned a lot by working in the heart of "Tornado Alley."
After graduation, Malone moved to Abilene, Texas working as the weekend meteorologist at KRBC. While there, Malone experienced and forecasted for several severe weather events. In November of 2008, Malone was thrilled to return to Oklahoma and rejoin News 9 as a Weather Producer and Staff Meteorologist, working hard behind the scenes creating unique graphics and coordinating severe weather coverage. You can often catch her on air on News 9 This Morning and News 9 at Noon. Malone is also a member of the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association.
When she isn't working and due to her love for animals, Malone enjoys volunteering with the Central Oklahoma Humane Society. She also enjoys running and training for races, going to the movies, attempting to cook, playing with her adorable dog, Sadie, and spending time with friends and family.
