Stacy Fernández is The Texas Tribune’s breaking news reporter. When she isn’t breaking stories, Stacy covers the gun beat and leads the Tribune’s reader-driven explainer series, Texplainer. First introduced to the Lone Star State as an intern at The Dallas Morning News, she was also a News21 fellow, reporter for NPR’s Next Generation Radio Project and Buffalo News intern. Stacy graduated from Syracuse University with dual degrees in magazine journalism and Latino-Latin American studies. The Afro-Dominicana thrifts frequently, is a solid bachata dancer and is a firm believer that listening to audiobooks is just as good as reading.
