Shalon Stevens joined Spectrum News 1 in Syracuse as a multimedia journalist in August 2021.

Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Shalon studied journalism at Bowling Green State University. She began her news career at WUTR in Utica prior to joining Spectrum News 1 and loves the natural beauty and deep history of upstate New York.

Shalon loves telling stories and meeting the people in her community. She appreciates being able to bring attention to the positives in the community, but also realizes the power in reporting to help bring possible solutions when there is a negative story. She feels her stories are empowering by giving a voice to the otherwise unheard.

When she’s not reporting you might find her trying a new recipe or enjoying a cup of coffee. She’s also a happy mother of a lovely son and daughter and loves spending time with family and friends.
