Danielle Breezy joined News 2 as Chief Meteorologist in July 2016.
Her passion for weather started when she was a child. She grew up outside of Philadelphia and saw everything from blizzards to ice storms to tornadoes.
Then, in eighth grade, a local tv meteorologist visited her school to talk about the weather and from that day forward, she knew she too would be a meteorologist.
She pursued her dream by studying atmospheric science at Cornell University. Go Big Red!
After that, it was stops in Salisbury, Oklahoma City, Dallas, and Boston before landing in Nashville.
Danielle has the CBM (Certified Broadcast Meteorologist) Seal, which is the highest seal a meteorologist can have, and currently is on the Chair of American Meteorological Society Board of Broadcast for 2022.
In 2021, she was honored by the American Meteorological Society with the June Bacon-Bercey Award for Broadcast Meteorology for her life saving work covering the Middle Tennessee tornado outbreak in March 2020. She was also named one of Nashville Business Journal’s 40 under 40 in 2020.
In her spare time, her number one priority is giving back. She is the spokesperson for the Nashville St. Jude Dream Home Campaign. She is also heavily involved with the American Lung Association, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, and the Nashville Humane Association. She loves visiting schools and inspiring kids to pursue math and science careers.
On a personal note, she is married to Joe Breezy who does middays at Hot 106.7 and is also the brand manager.
