Richmond Anchor Loses Cancer Fight

“Stephanie’s passing is a tremendous loss to our CBS 6 family and the Central Virginia community,” WTVR CBS 6 news director Sheryl Barnhouse said. “For 15 years here at WTVR, Stephanie inspired those around her to be better journalists and impacted many lives through her anchoring and Buddy Check 6 reports. Stephanie’s spirit, bright smile and infectious laugh will live on in the hearts of many.”
