Let’s now add one more great “winning woman” anchor to the list…
Rebecca Stewart (C’96, TriDelt) is the weekend morning anchor for Fox 61 in Connecticut. Check out her reel above!
As for how Rebecca got into the news…? Rebecca tells me,
“I always loved news. I thought it combined the cerebral and the theatrical: two things I loved. Reporting gives me the chance to write and tell people’s compelling stories in my own unique way. I consider myself a storyteller and a producer more than a personality. When I graduated from Penn, I bought a one way ticket to Buenos Aires. There, I worked for a newspaper (The Buenos Aires Herald) and realized, this is what I want to do. So– I came back to the States, got my Master’s and here I am.”
On a personal note, Rebecca and I graduated from Penn together and I remember that both she and her good friend actress Elizabeth Banks (C’96) were some of the great actresses on campus at the time. In fact, I remember having both Rebecca and Liz help me do a script reading for a short script I had written in Mark Lapadula’s screenwriting class.
