RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Friends and family gathered today to say goodbye to WTVR CBS 6’s anchor Stephanie Rochon. Stephanie died last Wednesday after a long battle with cancer.
Rochon had worked at CBS 6 since 1999, spending most of that time as co-anchor of the station’s 6:00 and 11:00 p.m. newscasts. Our colleagues at CBS 6 tell us that she was a passionate newsroom leader with a big heart and tireless work ethic.
Stephanie was 50 years old. She is survived by her husband, Jeff, her two sons, Miles and Pierce, as well as her mother, father, brother, and countless grateful friends, co-workers and viewers.
