Stacia Dubin Interview
Published: March 31, 2008
From New York to Los Angeles, young adults from Milwaukee have hit the road running. Here’s a sampling of what some of our favorite sons and daughters are doing out there. And, of course, we invite our readers to let us know of other interesting stories for future issues. Stacia Dubin’s face — and her words — are fast becoming well known in Chicagoland, where she is a newscaster on the CBS affiliate WBBM Channel 2.
Unlike Dubin, Mia Kaminsky works behind the scenes as casting producer for the syndicated reality television show “Blind Date,” which is filmed in New York. A self-described “doubtful” political candidate, Bari Lurie is a director of special projects for Friends of Hillary (Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y.) in Washington, D.C.
And, he may not be in front of the camera on “Fear Factor,” a reality show that airs on NBC, but Josh Silberman is preparing what can only be described as “gross” contests and testing some stunts for contestants in Los Angeles, where the show is filmed.
The Milwaukee natives, and coincidentally Nicolet High School grads, found a few minutes in their hectic schedules to share their experiences with The Chronicle. Not surprisingly, their mothers only gave us their cell numbers because in their words, she/he “is never home!”
Dubin graduated from Nicolet in 1990 and majored in journalism at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “I was vacillating between journalism and advertising and wrote a few articles for the Badger Herald. I was lucky to get an internship the summer after my junior year at Channel 6 in Milwaukee and guess that’s when I knew I wanted to get into broadcast news,” she explained.
Dubin started paying her dues in the broadcast field in Rhinelander. “Everyone starts out in a small market, but this was really small,” she said. “We wrote our stories on typewriters and literally pasted our scripts together. Fortunately, I was only there seven weeks before I was picked up by a station in LaCrosse. Though I took a pay cut, it had a live truck, which is really important for TV, and a computerized newsroom.”
A year-and-a-half later she re-joined Channel 6 in Milwaukee. “I was visiting old friends in the newsroom and was invited to send a tape. I worked there for four years before heading to Chicago in November of 2000. I’m an anchor-reporter for the morning news show, which airs, unfortunately, at 5 a.m., and a general assignment reporter.”
Her most memorable story, she said, was for Channel 6 and involved a woman who was carjacked in West Allis. “Coincidentally, this woman had seen an episode of ‘Oprah’ about what do if you are ever attacked. She implemented some of the suggestions, which led to the capture of the suspect. For me, it was a very compelling story,” Dubin recalled.
