NBC 7 SAN DIEGO NAMES SHEENA PARVEEN WEEKDAY MORNING AND MIDDAY NEWS METEOROLOGIST
San Diego, CA – NBC 7 San Diego / KNSD has named Sheena Parveen weekday morning and midday news meteorologist. Parveen will forecast San Diego’s weather on NBC 7 News Today 4:30 AM – 7:00 AM and on NBC 7 News Midday 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM Monday through Friday. Parveen will make her on-air debut on Wednesday, October 17th alongside NBC 7 Anchors Marianne Kushi and Greg Bledsoe.
Parveen joins NBC 7 from sister NBC station WRC in Washington, D.C. where she served as their weekday morning meteorologist. Prior to this, she was the weekday evening meteorologist for another sister NBC station, WCAU, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Parveen started her broadcast meteorology degree in her home state of Florida.
“Sheena’s education, training, and experience makes her a top meteorologist. Her genuine warmth and sense of humor make her a terrific on-air personality,” said Greg Dawson, Vice President of News for NBC 7. “We are thrilled to have her join our team and become part of the San Diego community.”
Parveen is an American Meteorological Society Certified Broadcast Meteorologist. In her career, she’s forecasted and covered hurricanes, tornadoes, and blizzards. Some of Parveen’s most notable weather coverage was when Hurricane Sandy made landfall at the New Jersey Shore; as well as, the blizzard of 2016 that demanded round the clock coverage for multiple days.
“While I’ve appreciated the opportunity to forecast all different types of weather events in different parts of our country, I’m excited to finally make my way to beautiful Southern California; an area I have dreamed of moving to.” Parveen said, “I’m thrilled to be working at NBC 7 with such a great morning team and I hope San Diego will wake up with us every morning so I can help people have their best day!”
Parveen earned her bachelor’s degree in meteorology from Florida State University.
