Who is Rudabeh Shahbazi?
Born under the sign of Gemini on the 16th of June 1980, in Miami, Florida USA, Rudabeh Shahbazi is a 38-year-old Caucasian journalist, editor and photographer of Iranian descent. She is perhaps best known to the world for her significant presence on the TV screen, enabled by her constant media exposure as an anchor through several news outlets, most famously as the evening and morning anchor for CBS’ channel 4 –WFOR.
Early Life and Education: Growing up in San Diego
Rudabeh was initially raised apparently an only child in her birthplace by parents of still unknown names and professions, while it is public knowledge that her father is Iranian. Her family later moved to San Diego in California, where she began her schooling. She first attended an unspecified local high school in San Diego, from where she matriculated in 1998. She then furthered her studies by enrolling into Pepperdine University in 2000, from where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism and sociology in 2004. In 2005 she entered the University of California, Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, from where she graduated with a Master of Arts degree in journalism and television production in 2007.
Career: From Assistant to Anchor
Immediately after obtaining her second degree, Rudabeh joined KTVU in the San Francisco Bay Area as a news assistant, in order to gain field experience, remaining there only for one year, after which she joined KEPR in Richland, Washington State for another one-year experience, this time as a reporter and multimedia journalist, specializing in photographing, editing and reporting news on a daily basis, mostly related to education, while also writing and posting articles online from 2008 to 2009. In the latter year, she joined KNXV in Phoenix, Arizona, where she had the same position as earlier, and remained there for two years until May 2011 when she transferred to KABC as a reporter, fill-in anchor and multimedia journalist, at which point she was the only TV reporter in Los Angeles history to report, edit and photograph stories while also anchoring daily newscasts, which she continued until 2015.
Arrival to CBS4
Her first position at the news outlet that garnered her the biggest chunk of fame so far was in 2015 as a morning anchor for CBS 4 (WFOR) in Miami, Florida. Within three months she was promoted to an evening anchor, and this is the position she maintains until today. As can be read on her CBS Miami profile, Rudabeh is in charge of anchoring weekday evening newscasts at five times – 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, 7:00 and 11:00 p.m. Additionally she is the anchor of the public affairs show entitled “Focus On South Florida”.
Influential and Dedicated
As is shown on Rudabeh’s muckrack.com profile, she is not only busy with reporting daily news and education-related topics, but also various other important subjects. A few examples can be concluded from a look at her latest articles, “Focus On South Florida: New App Helping Fight Addiction”, as well as “Focus On South Florida: The Hope Foundation”, which goes to show that Rudabeh is also devoted to promoting charities and medicine-related content, thus helping viewers to stay informed about some of the most important subjects today.
