Michelle Stark

Michelle Stark is a morning anchor and technology correspondent for WHNT News 19. She and her husband are also new parents, excited to be living in Huntsville and experiencing The South's legendary hospitality!

Michelle anchors weekdays from 4:30 - 7:00 a.m. on WHNT News 19. She also showcases must-see websites, apps, gadgets, emerging technologies and social media trends.

As an Emmy® Award-winning broadcast journalist with a decade of experience, Michelle brings a lot to the team.

In 2011, she was nominated for an Emmy® Award for a series of reports on technology in schools across the Tennessee Valley. That same year, the Alabama Associated Press Broadcasters Association also named her "Best News Anchor."

Previously, Michelle was a morning anchor and technology reporter for KIVI-TV in Boise, Idaho. While there, she was honored more than a dozen times for her writing, features and investigative work.

Michelle graduated from Michigan State University with a B.A. in International Relations and got her start in the industry as an anchor, reporter and producer at the ABC affiliate in Lansing, Michigan. She also spent time early in her career working as an intern/researcher in Washington D.C. for ABC's "World News Tonight with Peter Jennings."

In 2013, Michelle and her husband welcomed their first child - a baby girl. You can check out Michelle's baby blog @ michellestarkbabyblog.wordpress.com to follow her journey, or share your advice and insights!

When Michelle manages to get a quick break from the thrills (and spills) of parenting, she loves reading, video games, chowing down on fondue and artsy-crafty projects. As a Detroit native, Michelle also loves to cheer for that city's sports teams and, obviously, Spartan basketball!
