Stephanie Haney

Stephanie Haney is currently a correspondent on the nationally syndicated, two-time Emmy-nominated news magazine show, DailyMailTV, filmed in New York City and produced by Stage 29 Productions. As a lawyer, she’s uniquely qualified in covering everything from the latest legal drama, like the Bill Cosby trial, to politics, pop culture and entertainment.

Her on-camera credits include hosting roles on CBS (Undercover Boss) and The Travel Channel (Sturgis: Biker Madness), a series regular role on E! (The Drama Queen), and guest appearances on OWN, TNT, Spike, NFL Network, Fox Sports, and The History Channel.

Following earning her Master of Science in Journalism from the University of Southern California, graduating magna cum laude as an Annenberg Fellow, Stephanie produced for ABC’s Good Morning America in the Field and Series department, in addition to working on Diane Sawyer’s “American Dream” project.

She’s published in The Los Angeles Times, with cover stories featured in print in both Playboy Magazine (“The Campus Consent Crisis” on Title IX and sexual assault on college campuses) and LA Weekly (“The Brave New World Of Embryo Adoption” on the science that allowed a 51-year-old woman to give birth to twins). She writes for, POPSUGAR and other outlets.

Stephanie is also the co-creator and co-host of the Sassy and Uncalled For podcast, where she brings on experts and everyday individuals to tackle issues like how to properly negotiate a contract for equal pay, what birth control is really doing to our bodies, and the always-popular topic of dating and relationships. The podcast can be found on Apple and Google Podcasts, Spotify, SoundCloud and YouTube.

She’s developed, produced, shot, edited and hosted several of her own web series, including Sidebar with Stephanie, where she brings her point of view to current events and social issues, often highlighting what’s going on in the legal world. Stephanie is constantly developing new series and segments, which can be found on her personal YouTube channel and verified Facebook page.

Originally from Canton, Ohio, Stephanie is licensed to practice law in both Ohio and California. She moved to Los Angeles after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. While in LA, she also studied improvisation at The Upright Citizens Brigade.

Stephanie holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ohio University, cum laude, where she double-majored in both Political Science and Sociology/Criminology. She studied comparative politics abroad in Wales, UK, working as a research assistant for the Welsh National Assembly’s Labour Party.

Driven by a desire to bring people information that empowers, Stephanie works to raise awareness about overlooked issues and demand accountability of those in positions of power and influence, while approaching every story and source with empathy and understanding. Her understanding of the law and justice combines seamlessly with her knowledge of pop culture, which is more relevant than ever due to the fact that so many entertainment stories have a legal angle.

She currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
