Who is Danielle Banks?
Born on an unspecified day in 1978, in Virginia USA, Danielle Banks is a 41-year-old Caucasian reporter, anchor and meteorologist. She is known to the world for her significant presence on TV screens as the host and anchor of various programs originating from The Weather Channel, most famously for co-hosting “Weather Center Live” during the night. She has also had a number of other successes over the course of her sometimes lucrative journalism career since 2000.
Early Life and Education: Growing up in Virginia
Danielle was raised apparently an only child in her birthplace by parents of still unknown names and professions. When it comes to her earliest interests, there isn’t much information across sources that could clarify specifics about this part of her life, though she is believed to have harbored a passion for weather. As for her education, she first attended an unspecified local high school in her birthplace, from where she matriculated in 1996, then furthered her education by enrolling into Radford University, from where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in communication and media studies in 2000. Six years later, she also attended Mississippi State University, from where she graduated in 2009 with a certification in broadcast meteorology.
Career: From Anchoring to Meteorology
Right after obtaining her first degree, Danielle started working for WHSV – TV, also known as Gray Television, as an anchor and reporter based in Harrisonburg, Virginia, remaining in this position from June 2000 to June 2003. She then relocated to WATE 6 in the same role until March 2006, when she joined The Weather Channel (TWC) as a broadcast meteorologist, and also started in her second college. Initially, she used to only provide forecasts for a few stations, however, after obtaining her degree in meteorology in 2009, she also became an anchor for various on-air TV broadcasts, including even broadband ones for mobile devices and TWC’s weather.com. In 2011, she was tasked also with writing, shooting and producing content for weather.com. Over the course of “Tornado Hunt 2012”, she created footage for social media while in pursuit of storms. All of her aforementioned positions at TWC came to a halt in 2014, when she became a freelance fill-in anchor for broadcasts. This is the only TWC-related position she keeps even today.
From 2014 until today
After her promotion at TWC, Danielle also became a freelance anchor and reporter for Car Biz Today News, based in Atlanta, Georgia, where she remained until March 2015, when she obtained a job at The Weather Company that she has today as well – an on-camera digital meteorologist based in the Greater Atlanta Area, where she produces various videos for The Weather Channel app, weather.com and even Facebook Live.
Love Life: Does she have a husband?
As for her romantic involvements, there isn’t much information across reputable media sources to reveal details regarding any of Danielle’s relationships prior to her current one. After dating for an unknown amount of time, she married an unnamed man in 2007, with whom she is said to have been a high school sweetheart. Together, they are thought to have two children, the first of whom is a girl with a mysterious name born in 2009, while they had another child of an unconfirmed gender and name in 2011. Thus far, there hasn’t been any controversy surrounding Danielle’s matrimonial union, while she and her husband are thought to reside happily with their children at an unverified location.
She’s a Professional
As can be read on her TWC profile page, Danielle is not only good at discussing the weather, she is also a dedicated team player. Specifically, TWC said ‘Time permitting, she enjoys planning activities to enhance team interaction and allow the group to relax and just hang out together.’ Consequently, it can be concluded that Danielle takes great care of the entire team’s interaction quality, for she bases a big portion of the channel’s success on the amount of communication that is present between her colleagues.
Thanks to Danielle’s skillful interaction with colleagues and various types of work material, largely in due to her immaculate information to the public on weather conditions, Danielle is now one of the co-hosts of “Weather Center Live”, which contributes to her fame more than to most other TWC employees, simply because that channel is internet-based and constantly streamed on TWC’s website.
