Stephen Stock Biography

Stephen Stock is an Award-winning American Investigative reporter currently working for NBC Bay Area. He has helped establish, build and lead investigative teams in Orlando, Miami, and San Francisco’s TV markets. Only a couple of weeks after landing in the Bay Area, Stephen Stock had California’s Governor and State Assembly scrambling to address an environmental issue he uncovered, the unregulated practice of widespread hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as fracking, for oil in California. It is a practice that has become widespread but was little known until Stock uncovered it.

Now lawmakers and regulators in Sacramento have moved to address the issues Stock uncovered. A little more than a year after Stephen exposed the rise in the number of close calls between airplanes in the skies over the Bay Area and the country the National Transportation Safety Board released new safety recommendations to the FAA to address the issues raised in the report.

Stock has also uncovered the still little regulated practice of having children as young as eight years old work in the fields of America, from California’s Central Valley to North Carolina’s tobacco road. He’s also exposed the numbers of people voting in California the name of dead residents, a rise in the number of high-quality fake IDs in the US which is now creating a homeland security threat, campaign finance ties between Silicon Valley and the halls of political power, and questionable federal stimulus spending.

DuPont Silver Baton for coverage of the space shuttle Columbia tragedy.
