Somara Theodore has joined ABC News as a meteorologist based in New York City.
In this new role, Theodore will serve as the third New York-based meteorologist, working alongside chief meteorologist and managing editor of ABC News’ climate unit Ginger Zee and senior meteorologist Rob Marciano.
“With Somara among our ranks, I look forward to the unparalleled, continuing coverage of weather systems and climate change, expanding on our team’s on-the-ground reporting over the years from coast to coast within the U.S. and across the world from Mexico City to Canada, Antarctica to Africa, New Zealand to Australia and beyond,” ABC News president Kim Godwin said in a statement.
Theodore comes from WRC in Washington D.C., where she worked for six years on the weekend newscasts, NBCWashington.com, WTOP Radio as well as NBC’s Weekend Today.
She also provided wall-to-wall coverage of Hurricane Ian for MSNBC. While in D.C., Somara also served as an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland, teaching broadcast meteorology.
Before joining WRC, Theodore was the morning meteorologist at WEWS in Cleveland. She started her career as a weekend meteorologist for WJCL in Savannah, Georgia.
