Stacia Kalinoski is a Multimedia Journalist who joined WZZM 13 News in January 2012. She arrived from KEZI 9 News in Eugene, Oregon, where she spent two years on the education beat, as well as chasing other stories in Track Town USA. Before heading out west, she spent some time in Grand Island, NE as a bureau reporter for NTV News.

Originally from Thief River Falls, MN, she's happy to be back in the Midwest closer to snow and family, as well as relatives in the Upper Peninsula. She graduated with a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Minnesota, where she also ran track and cross country for the Gophers. Now it appears Stacia will have a another Big Ten team or two to cheer for.

Being half Polish, Stacia is also happy to find out Grand Rapids has its own little Polish community. If you have any recommendations for restaurants or other fun spots for her to visit please send her an email.

Stacia says her favorite part about reporting is meeting new people everyday and telling their stories. If you have a news tips to share with Stacia email her at staciakalinoski@wzzm13.com.
