Steffi Lee

Steffi Lee is a Capitol Correspondent covering the Texas Legislature and other statewide topics for a dozen stations in Texas. She joined Nexstar’s Austin Bureau in October of 2017.

Before moving to the Lone Star State, she worked in Iowa and Alaska. In Iowa, she covered the Iowa Legislature and gained extensive knowledge about public policy issues. Her time in Iowa also lined up with both the 2012 and 2016 presidential campaigns and she had the opportunity to cover the Iowa caucuses and interview presidential candidates.

She received her start in Des Moines, Iowa, working as a reporter, editor and photographer part-time while finishing up her senior year at Simpson College. She then served as a general assignment reporter in Cedar Rapids before returning back to Des Moines to launch Sinclair Broadcast Group’s Capitol Bureau. She’s received several awards from the Iowa Broadcast News Association.

Most recently, she was selected for a 2019 fellowship for training on vaccinations reporting through the National Press Foundation.

Steffi has also trained with leaders of the National Press Photographer’s Association to hone her skills as a multimedia journalist who does it all.

In her spare time, she leads Power Yoga and Yoga Sculpt classes – the best feeling is getting to sweat as a community before the sun rises.

Steffi grew up in Southern California and is excited to call Texas home.
