Stone Phillips began his career in news soon after his 1977 graduation from Yale as a newsroom assistant at the ABC affiliate WXIA-TV in Atlanta, Georgia, soon moving up to producer for local news programs. In 1979, he moved to Washington, DC, to become an assignment editor at ABC's News Bureau and three years later was convinced to audition for an on air spot. He won the job and became a general assignment correspondent for ABC News covering stories around the world (including Beirut and India).

Phillips also served as a substitute host on "Good Morning, America" and was sports anchor of ABC's "World News Sunday."

Phillips moved to NBC at the start of 1992 and was named as co-anchor of "Dateline NBC" in March. He has scored his share of news coups: in a 1992 interview with then President George Bush, Phillips asked several questions on abortion which led to national news headlines when Bush admitted he would let a daughter make her own decision on the issue. During an interview with Phillips, Russian President Boris Yeltsin admitted that some American POWs were sent by the Vietnamese to Russian labor camps and might still be alive. In 1994, Phillips conducted an exclusive jailhouse interview with convicted murderer Jeffrey Dahmer and his father Lionel and, in 1995, Phillips filed a series of reports on the O.J. Simpson trial from Los Angeles. Phillips has also served as a substitute anchor for Tom Brokaw on the "NBC Nightly News" and, on occasion, has stepped in for Bryant Gumbel as host of "Today" as well. He was named as a contributing correspondent to the network's joint cable venture with Microsoft, MSNBC, in 1996.
