Meet the Team

Stephen Whiting

Producer / Director

Stephen Whiting joined Newsy in July 2017 and is a director hailing from the great state of Oklahoma. He's the type of person who has a dangerous affinity for running toward tornadoes and has strong opinions on gravy, barbecue, and 2nd division American soccer. Stephen doesn't believe in pants, but will reluctantly adhere to the dress code on company property. Stephen's spent nearly a decade in television and has played a role in covering everything from sporting events - like the 2009 BCS National Championship and 2009 NCAA Women's Final Four - to major news events like the West, Texas fertilizer disaster and more tornadoes than he can count on his fingers and toes combined. Chances are if you see a LIVE picture on your screen Stephen's involved somehow.
