Eileen Whelan Career

Whelan works at WJLA-TV in Washington, DC serving as a morning meteorologist. She travels across the ABC7 viewing area in the Storm Tracker Hummer giving live weather conditions, in the early mornings, for Good Morning Washington. Eileen also serves as a meteorologist at NewsChannel8.

She has been a weather enthusiast since the age of six. Her love of weather commenced primarily because of her dad’s business.  Eileen narrates she has fond memories of watching different weather reports with him in the mornings before she would leave for school and he would head off to work. She vigilantly watched the radar and updated her father, via cell phone, where the storm/snow/rain was located and where it was headed, so he knew which jobs he could finish outdoors (this was back in the day before our cell phones could give us live weather updates/ live radar streams via Apps like First Alert).

Eileen’s love for weather continued to grow, as the years went by. She would chase storms “live” from outside her house, would pin paper maps on her walls and assume she was giving a live weather forecast on-air, and compare her own forecasts to other local meteorologists. She actually watched both Bob Ryan and Doug Hill.

Eileen was very engaged with the National Broadcasting Society, The Geographic Society, and different other organizations all over campus. She finished two internships while at SU. Eileen interned at WMDT in Salisbury, MD, and with Sue Palka at FOX 5 in DC. Upon graduation, she landed her 1st on-air position at WBOC in Salisbury, MD. She commenced off working the weekend morning show and then went on to anchor the weekday morning and noon shows. Her forecasts started — in DC. In her off time, Eileen enjoys consuming lots of time with her family and friends,  trying new craft beers, reading a good book on the beach, exercising, meeting new people, and learning new things about the weather.
