KGW Anchor/Reporter

Stephanie Stricklen anchors the 4pm news with Reggie Aqui and also hosts Live @ 7 weekdays.

As a Northwest native she’s spent her entire life in this area. She also has the travel bug and has checked out many other parts of the country and abroad. Her travels covering the Olympics have taken her to Salt Lake City, Greece, Italy, China, and Canada for weeks on end.

She’s interviewed the Dalai Lama, rappelled down a cliff, gone spelunking, and even took a thrilling 45 minute flight with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels in one of the team's F-18 fighter jets.

Steph most enjoys spending time with her husband John and their daughter. They love the coast at all times of year, hauling their travel trailer wherever they feel like going. Back in 2006, something clicked in Steph's brain and she developed a passion for cooking. She and John also help keep a lot of sushi restaurants in business.

Steph loves writing, photography, painting, making jewelry and, really, pretty much any other creative project that lets her spend money on new supplies.
