Stacy Baum has managed all aspects of corporate, non-profit, and political development and communications activities. But at heart, Stacy is a producer. “A month after I graduated from college, Carole Kneeland hired me to be her 5:00 producer at KVUE in Austin and the remarkable lessons I learned there have not been forgotten,” explains Stacy. “It is not an exaggeration to say that Carole changed my life, shaped the direction of my career, and taught me powerful lessons that I am privileged to pass along to colleagues and my family.”
Stacy has served as vice-president of marketing & development for Educare Colorado, a $15M early childhood non-profit organization, a press secretary for a Member of Congress, marketing director at KUSA-TV in Denver, and marketing research director for Gannett Broadcasting. In addition to her work on The Kneeland Project, Stacy is the Community Initiatives Manager for KDVR & KWGN in Denver, and operates ClearBridge Communications, where she has provided fundraising, marketing research, public relations, and strategic planning for her clients since 2003. She won an Emmy in 2013 for her leadership for the Women & Girls Lead initiative at Rocky Mountain PBS.
A graduate of the University of Colorado @ Boulder, Stacy and her husband Michael lived in both Austin, Texas and Washington, DC before returning to Colorado to raise their two children.
