A Massachusetts native with over 25 years of journalism experience as an anchor and reporter in New England, Stephanos joined WCVB-TV in February 2016. She’ll sit down with O’Terry to chat about her early days in her hometown of Groveland, her passion for getting to the heart of the story, and the winding road that led her to one of the most coveted anchor desks in the business.

The signature series is the brainchild of O’Terry, who has interviewed over 600 women in her broadcasting career, many of them for the award-winning show “Exceptional Women” for Greater Media.
