Stassy Olmos joined the News 2 team in April 2019 as a multimedia reporter, also known as a “one-man-band” journalist in the TV industry. She shoots, writes, and edits her own stories.
Stassy comes to the Music City from WKRN’s sister station, WSAV, in Savannah, Georgia, and Lowcountry, South Carolina, where she was a bureau reporter and a weekend morning anchor from late 2016 to 2019.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Stassy is excited to be reporting in the city lights of Nashville, with a little more country twang on the red carpet than Hollywood.
Stassy is the recipient of a Georgia AP Award for excellence in general reporting, as well as Los Angeles Press Club awards in education and general reporting.
She received her bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism with a minor in social entrepreneurship from the University of Southern California in 2015. She then went on to get her masters in journalism from Columbia University in New York in 2016.
Stassy has also interned for ABC’s 20/20 in NYC and the CBS Investigative Unit in Los Angeles.
Her passion for journalism stems from her heart for people. She’s done extensive work regarding the mental health and education of the homeless population in Los Angeles.
She also covered severe weather events including the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew and Tropical Storm Irma in Georgia and South Carolina.
In her free time, she enjoys going to concerts, cooking, traveling, and catching some sun at the lake or beach.
