St. Louis Station Hires MMJ and Sunday Morning Anchor

By Kevin Eck 

St. Louis NBC affiliate KSDK has hired Sydney Stallworth as an MMJ and anchor.

At KSDK, she’ll report during the weekdays and co-anchor the Sunday morning news with Kelly Jackson.

“Numerous Zooms, phone calls, emails, and texts have convinced me that Sydney has a high probability of success in St. Louis and will become an asset as a 5 On Your Side reporter and anchor,” said news director Art Holliday. “I think the audience, as well as her new KSDK family, will enjoy Sydney’s positive energy, personality, drive, and her passion for telling stories that impact the community, including mental health reporting.”


Stallworth comes from Alabama, where she was a Saturday evening anchor/producer and weekend reporter at WZDX in Huntsville. While at WZDX, she launched a franchise focusing on mental health called “Mental Health Mondays.”

“I can’t wait to come out to St. Louis and join the 5 On Your Side family,” said Stallworth. “I’m a Florida girl, so I’m looking forward to getting a taste of all STL has to offer — literally. I can’t count all times I’ve heard about the butter cake and BBQ!”
