NBC10 Philadelphia announces that Tedd Florendo will be joining the station as a weekend meteorologist starting this weekend.
Florendo joins NBC10 from CBS affiliate KLAS in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he has been a meteorologist, reporter and anchor since 2004.
Florendo was the 2007 recipient of the Nevada Broadcasters Electronic Media Award for Best Weathercaster, and received an Emmy in 2005 for Best Weekend Newscast.
Before KLAS, Florendo was meteorologist at multiple stations, including WFRV in Green Bay, Wisconsin, KAPP in Yakima, Washington and KVEW in Kennewick, Washington.
“Tedd has great meteorology skills, paired with a positive energy and style that our viewers will appreciate,” said Anzio Williams, Vice President of News for NBC10.
Florendo, a native of Seattle, Washington, began his career in broadcast journalism in his hometown as an assignment editor at KOMO. He holds a degree in broadcast journalism from Washington State University and a certification of meteorology from Mississippi State University.
He will be relocating to Philadelphia with his daughter and wife Jennifer, a Pennsylvania native.
