Sheena Parveen is leaving NBC 10.
The meteorologist announced on Facebook this morning that she’d accepted a position at NBC 4 in Washington, D.C. She’ll remain with the Philadelphia station until the end of the year. Both stations are owned and operated by NBCUniversal, a division of Comcast.
Parveen called the switch “bittersweet” in her Facebook post. “In the meantime,” she wrote, “I wanted to share this news with you and let you know how much I’ve appreciated all the support I’ve received from this great town! Thank you all.”
As the Inquirer noted this morning, Parveen’s social life has been fodder for local gossip columnists almost since she arrived in Philadelphia in December 2011.
Anzio Williams, vice president of news for NBC 10 and Telemundo 62, sent the following message to the staff today:
Sheena Parveen has accepted a meteorologist position at our sister station WRC-TV in Washington, D.C. It is a move Sheena has been wanting. Our loss is WRC’s gain. Sheena joined the NBC10 First Alert Weather team 4-years ago, working to protect the Philadelphia area during big weather events like Hurricane Sandy and the Blizzard 2016. She worked to launch NBC10 Weather Day at Citizens Bank Park, a joint partnership with the Phillies. She also recorded weather updates for CSN, the Flyers, 76ers and our radio partners 101.1 MORE FM. Sheena has been a great advocate and supporter of our communities and her love for pets made her the perfect ambassador for our Clear the Shelters pet adoption campaign. I’m certain that DC-area viewers will benefit from her energy, enthusiasm and expertise and immediately connect with her. Please join me in congratulating Sheena on this great career opportunity. Sheena will make this inter-division move at the end of 2016.
Parveen, formerly at FOX13 Tampa, is a native of Florida.
