There are those in the TV business who have gained fame for their knowledge of the work while others are famous for their charm and grace. Sheena Parveen combines all of these with a touch of humor and genuine warmth to be one of the most loved meteorologists in America.
Currently working with NBC 7 News Today and NBC 7 News Midday, Sheena has forecasted and covered hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, and more, although she has come to be better known for her coverage of Hurricane Sandy. Having started her career over a decade ago, she has built a rich resume, thanks to her gigs with different stations.
What We Know About Her Personal Life
Born in September 1987 to Mark and Sherry in India, Sheena Parveen was brought up in Florida where her family moved to when she was still a little girl.
She was quite athletic while growing up and was active in several sports in her days as a high school student, including football and volleyball which she got to play for the school team.
Being a rather private person, Parveen has always kept her personal life under wraps. On the dating scene, she has been a subject of a lot of unconfirmed speculations in the past.
The Men She Has Been Linked To
There have been rumors linking her to people like Hugh Jackson and Stock Harnett who is the swap captain of NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers and the left-winger of Canada’s professional ice hockey team. As it would turn out, like all other men she has been linked to, there was nothing between them.
Sheena was also linked to William Green, former NBC 10 anchor Jamison Uhler, as well as Hollywood actor Jason Statham. The rumor that she was dating Statham was quick to be dismissed when it was revealed that she only met him during one of her news coverage segments.
News once broke that the beautiful weather woman was married to a man named Charlie. It was also claimed later, that the two were having problems in marriage before they later divorced. However, while there is nothing to support this claim, Parvena did not comment on it, keeping mute as she has done in her other relationship rumours.
The Career Journey
The career path of Sheena Parveen was set when she attended Florida State University where she studied Meteorology, eventually graduating with a minor in Mathematics and a Bachelor’s degree in Meteorology.
Before she started her professional career, she had her internship at Tallahassee News and after graduation, she got her first official working experience from WCTV which is also in Tallahassee. Sheena worked there as a journalist, reporter, and weather forecaster.
She was with WCTV, mainly as a meteorologist for more than one year, from June 2008 until August 2009. This job gave her the needed exposure she used in covering environment-related topics. She was likewise a columnist for the station’s weekend morning show.
The next place she would work was with Fox TV Stations also in Florida, although this time around, she moved to Tampa. Sheena served as a meteorologist for Fox13 for more than two years from 2009 to 2011 before she gained promotion to take up the position of the head forecaster. Parveen served as the on-air meteorologist on the weekend show Good Day Tampa Bay.
She was issued her Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBN) by the American Meteorological Society in 2011.
After the Florida native left Fox, she moved to NBC News where she still works. She first worked in Philadelphia for five years, from 2011 to 2016 as the evening meteorologist for WCAU. Since she started her career, it was at NBC that she spent the most time. Sheena covered the EF5 tornado while she was there.
Her departure from NBC10 in Philadelphia was well felt as she was the best the station had, although she was happy leaving since it meant moving to a milder climate.
In December 2016, she moved to NBC’s affiliate in Washington D.C., WRC (NBC4) where she worked as the morning meteorologist until 2018 and then she was off to San Diego, California where she still works as its morning meteorologist.
With a career that is very successful and her vast experience, Sheena has not only gained fame but also accumulated a good fortune. She is said to be earning as much as $1.7 million each year as her salary while her net worth is placed at around $3 million.
