National television/radio host and correspondent Stacey Gualandi has come a long way since her first big scoop right out of Miami University’s journalism program: picking up horse manure as a P.A. on the set of the film Eight Men Out. Not quite the journalistic scoop she was looking for, but it did lead to another “inside” job as Molly Ringwald’s stand-in on the film Fresh Horses. That’s when she decided to move to Hollywood to be a television reporter.
Stacey is now the host of The Women’s Eye Radio Show on 1480KPHX.com, and contributor to the online magazine www.thewomenseye.com. Both provide an avenue for today’s newsmakers, authors, journalists, and entrepreneurs to discuss how they are making a difference in “the world as we see it!”
She developed her gutsy style of reporting at American Journal and for eight years at Inside Edition. Stacey covered the world of entertainment, particularly celebrities at work, at play and in trouble. And, there was very little she wouldn't do for a story.
Stacey stayed awake for 80 hours to test the effects of sleep deprivation; she painted the Hollywood sign; she changed light bulbs on the Oakland Bridge; she joined Cirque du Soleil; she went undercover as a polio survivor to expose a deceitful televangelist; she flew a plane after only 15 minutes of instruction; she attempted sheep riding; she joined an all-female chain gang, and she went behind-the-scenes at the Bunnyranch brothel long before Diane Sawyer.
She hosted a ground-breaking multi-media project called Understanding Cancer. Both the website and pilot profiled numerous cancer survivors and advocates including Arnold Palmer, Mr. T, Laura Ingraham, and Hilary Swank, and served as a cancer-support network for survivors, caregivers, family, friends and those recently diagnosed.
As the host of On Tour at Fox5/KVVU, Stacey covered the bands and personalities who performed in Las Vegas. She also hosted Hallmark Channel's web-based behind-the-scenes show On Location, and covered Hollywood as a producer/correspondent for EXTRA and TV Guide Network.
Stacey earned a BS degree in Broadcast Journalism from Miami University. While attending college, she worked as an on-air radio broadcaster for the campus radio station WMUB and also spent a semester studying in Luxembourg. Stacey is also a certified yoga and spin instructor for YAS Fitness Centers in Los Angeles.
She lives in Los Angeles and Las Vegas with her husband Marty and mutts Wally and Bobo.
