Stacy Rickard joined Spectrum News in June of 2018.

She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in May 2016, with a degree in journalism.

Rickard has aspired to be a reporter since before she reached high school. Her first role on the Spectrum News team was the Hays County bureau reporter, covering almost a dozen counties in the Central Texas area. This position brought her back to the area she grew up in of New Braunfels, something she never thought she would get the opportunity to do.

Currently, Stacy is one of the first multimedia journalists on the team to be reporting in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. What inspires Rickard’s work is the chance to meet new people every single story. No two days reporting are ever the same and there’s always a new story for Rickard to share.

Aside from journalism, Rickard’s greatest passions include photography and singing, so even when she’s not reporting, it’s safe to say a camera is never far away, whether she's behind it or in front of it.
