Stacy Ike is all things entertainment — from hosting, to acting, to fashion--add a dash of social justice and stir, Stacy refuses to be categorized, constantly exploring ways to be her best. Hailing from Houston, Texas and a proud University of Missouri J-School graduate, Stacy embarked on her evolving career immediately after graduating.
Creating waves in the U.S and Australia, Stacy hit the ground running. Interviews with Oprah, Tom Ford, and Jamie Foxx to name a few, Stacy continues to change the perception of modern day media. In 2014, Stacy worked with Afterbuzz TV, toured with Mountain Dew to host live shows and partnered with Smashbox Cosmetics for a talk series with fellow influencers. She has also worked with Baller Alert, Regal Cinemas, Tribune Publishing and the Hollywood Reporter as a writer and on-camera talent.
She is the co-founder of NAMOILiving, (not afraid of my imperfections) a platform she uses to encourage and uplift fellow dreamers. Stacy's mantra as an artist in the entertainment industry is finding freedom in being who Christ created one to be. She often says, "Each moment I decide to be myself, I give someone else permission to do the same thing." Currently, Stacy is the host of Oprah Winfrey Networks (OWN) first live show, OWN Tonight, a late-night show where cast members from the hit drama Greenleaf along with other celebrity fans join to talk about Greenleaf and other pop-culture topics.
When she's not prepping for an interview, rehearsing a scene for acting class, or dropping inspiration and straight talk on her Youtube channel, you might find her binge-watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S or obsessing over a new Netflix show with a huge bowl of kettle popcorn.
