Stephanie Domurat comes to Eugene from Orange County, California. After a short break from news, she is happy to be back on the desk bringing light to issues that impact local communities. She comes to KMTR with more than 5 years of broadcast experience working as an Anchor, Reporter and Producer. She started her journalism career in April of 2008 as a Reporter at KULR-TV in Billings, Montana. Since, she has worked as an Anchor/Reporter in Macon, Georgia and most recently Waco, Texas.
Stephanie was born in upstate New York (Go Bills!), but was raised in Southern California. She first fell in love with journalism as an intern at KOCE, the local PBS affiliate in Orange County, California. From there, she attended Chapman University and graduated from the Dodge School of Film and Television. During her education, she had the opportunity to intern and at times report at three stations across Orange County and Los Angeles, including KCBS, KCAL, KOCE and Garden Grove's Channel 3 News.
Her favorite thing about journalism is being able to call attention to issues that matter to a community. She feels lucky to be able to share incredible stories as part of her job. As a reporter, she has been touched by so many stories, but her most memorable was the Big Sky Honor Flight from Billings, Montana to Washington, D.C. It was a trip that allowed her the opportunity to witness and share the journey of nearly 100 World War II Veterans taking a trip to D.C. to see the memorial that stands in their honor.
Stephanie has a passion for health and medical reporting and is always looking for a great story. She has completed several semesters of post-baccalaureate education in physical and social sciences because of her passion and interest in health and science. She even spent a summer as a neuroscience research assistant in the Department of Biology at Cal Poly Pomona. During her time working off the news desk, Stephanie has worked as an Education and Awareness Manager advocating for victims of domestic and sexual violence. She has a passion for calling attention to issues in a community and truly believes that knowledge is power.
When she's not working Stephanie enjoys the outdoors, live music, great restaurants and new adventures. She has volunteered with Big Brothers Big Sisters, the YWCA, and as a medical counselor at Texas Lions Camp.
You can watch Stephanie anchoring alongside Ty Steele weekday evenings at 5, 5:30, 6:30 and 11:00.
