A unique blend of Polynesian, Cherokee Indian and Greek descent, this award winning Television Host, Sideline Reporter and Producer has proven credibility and trust throughout the sports and entertainment industries. Stacy Paetz began her career making history. At only 19-years-old, she made her first on-air appearance on ESPN. She became the first female and youngest individual in the NBA to host every pre-game, halftime and post-game show, as well as report from the sidelines for the Indiana Pacers on FOX Sports for seven seasons. In 2014, Stacy became the first female announcer in the 90-year history of the World Famous Harlem Globetrotters, announcing on both U.S. and International tours. In addition to television, Stacy hosts a variety of red carpet events, including Los Angeles Fashion Week, awards shows and charity events.

Stacy worked the sidelines for the NBA on TNT during the regular season and as part of TNT’s coverage of the NBA Playoffs. She’s reported for NBAtv’s Draft Night Special, The Jump, GameTime, Auto Trader Tip Off and NBA Summer League. She hosted NCAA On Campus, a national show featuring top student-athletes as well as NCAA men’s hockey, soccer and basketball selection shows. Stacy can also be seen hosting UCLA Women’s Basketball features and heard across the country as a radio voice for NCAA Championships.

Stacy covered the college football sidelines for Big Ten Network, Mazda MX-5 racing for Velocity on Discovery Channel, as well as Indy Car, TUDOR, and Continental Tire races for Honda Racing HPD Trackside. Prior to joining FOX Sports, she hosted ESPN’s Scholastic Sports America, a weekly show featuring the top high school athletes in the nation. While at ESPN, she worked the sidelines for college football, Women’s College World Series, Little League World Series, NCAA Men’s Soccer Championships, the Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, ESPN’s X-Games and ESPN’s Sunday Night NFL. Stacy hosted NCAA Football, volleyball and softball selection shows, NFL’s Inside the Colts, Auto Racing’s CART Friday Night and Splash TV, providing in-depth features on Olympic swimmers and divers around the globe.

Stacy has been featured in Sports Illustrated and Dime Magazine for her work on and away from television. She mentors children, speaks to several organizations across the country each year and is involved with church and community services. Stacy is on the Board of Advisors for Athletes Against Drugs, Sheltering Wings, Just Say Know and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. She coached basketball skills and lead media training for boys and girls in Ireland with SportQuest and has worked closely with Wounded Warrior Project, Children’s Action Network, Autism Speaks, Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, Pencils of Promise, Children’s Bureau, and the National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth. Stacy also supports the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, Every Nation, Sister Connection, The Boaz Project, Hope for Women Magazine, World Vision, and the Christian HolyLand Foundation. Stacy was named Graduate of the Decade for Ball State University just five years post graduation, and was later honored as one of the Most Influential 30 under 30 in Journalism.

Away from television, Stacy loves athletic challenges and adventures. She has rock climbed in Alaska, skydived and kayaked in San Juan, zip-lined in Hawaii and hiked Pike’s Peak. Stacy piloted an Indy Car at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and was “disappointed the governor limited her to only 130mph.” She rides motorcycles and is pursuing her pilot’s license. She still makes time to play basketball, softball, beach volleyball, golf and trains in CrossFit.

Fun Facts: Stacy was a special feature producer for a segment on the Oprah Winfrey Show. She was once chosen out of the crowd by World renowned Illusionist, David Copperfield, where he turned tissue paper into a rose with a flash of fire. She was featured on a parade float during the Indianapolis 500 Festival on ABC. She’s spent time in each U.S. State and 28 countries, owns over 400 pairs of shoes and has finished her first of a multi-book series
