A few years ago I was visiting the KPTV studios and met Stephanie Kralevich who was floating around the studios doing a little bit of everything from being on camera to helping produce segments. I told the G.M at the time that Stephanie should be used more on camera and that she had that special spark. Today Stephanie is a meteorologist at Fox 12 and will have a very successful career. Stephanie was born in Gresham and graduated from the University of Oregon. A TV station in Medford was her training ground before joining KPTV.

#6: FAVORITE WEB SITE?
Mark Nelsen's Weather Page. I pasted the link below. It has a link to every weather-related website you can imagine, including his blog. If you are all interested in the weather, his blog is a must read.
#7: LAST BOOK READ?
This is kind of embarrassing. I just finished "Brady Brady Brady: The complete story of the Brady Bunch, "by the shows producers, Lloyd & Sherwood Schwartz. I grew up watching all of the Brady Bunch re-runs and I have read every Brady biography out there!
#8: BEST BAR IN TOWN?
Element Restaurant & Bar. It's a brand new place on SW 12th & Morrison. They have a drink called "Blonde Ambition", made with grapefruit-infused Belvedere. I'm not really into martinis...but that drink is so grape fruity and delicious.
#9: STUMPTOWN OR STARBUCKS?
Stumptown, everyday twice on Sunday! Their "Hair Bender Blend" will put lead in your pencil!
#10: YOUR FAVORITE RADIO STATION?
Oldies 106.7FM. If I'm looking for traffic and weather updates, then it's KPAM 860.
