Eileen Whelan Career

Whelan serves at WJLA and NewsChannel8 as a weather forecaster and producer. Prior to joining WJLA, she served for eight and a half years as an evening meteorologist at NBC in Washington, D.C. Eileen travels across the ABC7 viewing area in the Storm Chaser Hummer providing live weather conditions, in the early mornings, for Good Morning Washington.

Eileen’s interest in weather began at the tender age of 6. Her dad’s business was a contributing factor to her love of weather. Her dad works as a commercial roofing contractor, so his business relies heavily on day-to-day weather forecasts. According to Eileen, she has fond memories of watching various weather reports with him in the mornings before she would leave for school and he would head off to work. She would often watch the radar vigilantly and update her dad, via cell phone, where the rain/storm/snow was located and where it was headed, so he knew which jobs he could complete outdoors.

As the years went by her passion for weather continued to grow. She would track storms “live” from outside her house, would pin paper maps on her walls and pretend she was giving a live weather forecast on-air, and compare her own forecasts to other local meteorologists. She actually watched both Doug Hill and Bob Ryan!

Eileen landed her first on-air position after graduation, at WBOC in Salisbury, MD. She began by working the weekend morning show and then went on to anchor the weekday morning and noon shows. Now she’s back, where all her forecasts started — in DC! Her hobbies include spending lots of time with her family and friends, reading a good book on the beach, trying new craft beers, exercising, learning new things about the weather, and meeting new people.
