It all began with ABC’s Good Morning America TV show
Steele started off her career as a meteorologist in Washington city and like most beginners, her role wasn’t quite a big one. Her first employer was WJLA, an ABC weather news studio for the State of Washington where she not only expanded her skills, but also the experience she needed for a bigger job. Then came her big break with ABC’s “Good Morning America” TV show where she anchored several entertaining and informative episodes.
She also hosted some episodes of ABC’s news magazine show, ‘Primetime Live’ and in June 2009, she worked with Jim Cantore replacing Stephanie Abrams and Mike Bettes as the co-anchors of Weather Centre Live. While doing that, she briefly took a job of an on-camera meteorologist for CNN.
She Made a Wrong Forecast
Steele has worked with CNN, the Weather Channel and ABC’s WJLA but of course, not without some hitches on her path to her successful career. One of those not-so-good moments was on January 14th, 2012 when she gave a forecast for the big game between Lions of San Diego and the Los Angeles Chargers. Unfortunately, neither of the two teams were expected to play games that day. Although mistakes as such are not uncommon to reporters, the meteorologist still faced some backlash from viewers. However, some of her dedicated fans chose to point fingers on the entire news reporting team for the media blunder.
Steele’s Affair With Co-Anchor Jim Cantore

Tamara herself is also said to have been suffering from Parkinson’s disease even before Jim filed for divorce and Steele is blamed for being the reason behind Jim’s decision to leave his family. Jim, like Steele, has remained silent on all the rumors about them. As a matter of fact, he is said to have been in a romantic relationship with CNN journalist Andrea Butera since 2010.
