After nearly three years at NBC10, meteorologist Tammie Souza is no longer with the station, a WCAU spokesperson has confirmed. Her last day was Friday, Dec. 6.
“We thank her for her time with the First Alert Weather team,” the spokesperson said in a statement to the Inquirer.
Souza began appearing on NBC10’s weekday evening newscasts in March 2017 following a stint at Fox 32 in Chicago. She arrived as a replacement for former NBC10 meteorologist Sheena Parveen, who left the station in October 2016.
In social media posts at the time of her hiring, Souza called working with NBC10 her “dream job.” She had not publicly commented about her departure from the station as of Monday afternoon.
A graduate of San Diego State University and Mississippi State University, Souza began her career in meteorology in 1996 at CBS12 in Chico, Calif., according to her LinkedIn profile. Prior to coming to Philadelphia, Souza worked at stations that included CBS58 in Milwaukee, NBC5 in Chicago, and 10News WTSP in Tampa, Fla. Her position at Chicago’s Fox32 began in 2011, and lasted until her 2017 move to Philly.
Former reporter Dray Clark was ousted from the station after domestic-related assault charges surfaced in September. Charges against Clark were dropped in October.
“I’ve seen it all and have forecasted it all,” Souza said in a release when she was hired at NBC10. “Now I’m excited for the next chapter in my life to unfold in Philadelphia, which is known for its various weather patterns.”
