Stephanie Stahl, CBS 3 and The CW Philly 57’s Emmy Award-winning medical specialist, is featured daily on Eyewitness News.
As one of the television industry’s most respected medical reporters, Stahl has been recognized by community and health organizations alike for her hard-hitting yet compassionate approach to her beat, an approach that has changed lives and influenced medical practices.
One investigative report that Stahl reported about an e-coli outbreak in the Philadelphia region was instrumental to the development of new federal recommendations for petting zoos That is characteristic of her work, but viewers have also seen Stahl “on their side” resolving medical bills; arranging surgery to repair a facial disfigurement that gave a Chester County man his life back, and telling the emotional story of a teen who came back from a suicide attempt to recover, graduate and move on in life to inspire others.

Women in Communications recognized her contributions with its highest honor, the Sarah Award. In 2011, the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia inducted Stahl into its Hall of Fame.
