Meteorologist Trainee Daphne DeLoren was very excited to join the First Warn 5 Weather Team a month after graduating in June, 2014. She is a proud Alumni of the Florida State University, where she earned her bachelor's degree in meteorology.
Daphne's passion for meteorology and broadcasting sparked at the early age of twelve, when she was handed a graphic clicker for her first practice weather cast at KESQ, an ABC affiliate in Palm Springs, California.
Raised in the Sunshine State, Daphne has grown up around hurricanes and has always been fascinated by the science behind the storm.
Prior to joining WNEM-TV5, Daphne interned at CNN Türk, in Istanbul, Turkey. Before that she was a Meteorologist Intern at NBC6 in Miami as well as WCTV, an ABC affiliate in Tallahassee, Florida. While earning her degree, Daphne was a team leader and on-air forecaster for the student run live weather show, ‘4FSU Weather.' Her weather forecasts were used in the weekly newspaper on campus, ‘FSView news.'
When she's not weather forecasting, you can find Daphne in the kitchen creating new recipes or pursuing her fitness goals outdoors.
Daphne says her faith in God is what keeps her so positive and up beat. She is thrilled to be a part of the Mid-Michigan community, rain or shine.
