Ginger Zee Biography

When it comes to nationally recognized broadcasters, the phrase “I’ve seen it all” has become a tired cliché.

In the case of Ginger Zee however, the expression doesn’t even scratch the surface. Known to millions as the face of ABC News’ meteorology team, as well as for being a finalist on the 22nd season of Dancing with the Stars, Zee’s story goes far beyond the confines of television.

With the release of her second New York Times best-selling memoir "A Little Closer To Home" which is a follow-up to "Natural Disaster: I Cover Them, I Am One," Zee candidly brings readers along the immensely difficult mental health journey from anorexia and depressed fledgling meteorologist to the first female chief network meteorologist at a network. After obtaining a B.S. in Meteorology from Valparaiso University, Zee worked her way up through various news outlets in the Midwest as a meteorologist and storm chaser. But as she puts it, by chasing these storms she was avoiding the real one brewing at home — a string of misguided relationships, including a horrifically abusive one that wouldn’t end until she was forced to call the police, and a deep soul search that lead her to check in to a mental health hospital ten days before starting her job at ABC. Zee was struggling with significant mental health issues that went undiagnosed until she entered that inpatient therapy and began — slowly but surely — to get her on track.

Despite all of this dysfunction, self-doubt, and turmoil, Zee has managed to build a remarkable career and family. Now, she is taking her message of resilience, her tools to maintain healing and self-care around the country.

Zee will leave audiences feeling renewed, empowered, and intensely moved by her raw, poignant chronicle of life as a "Natural Disaster."

Zee is the chief meteorologist at ABC News. You see her covering the nation’s weather headlines on "Good Morning America" and across all ABC News broadcasts and digital platforms. Most recently, she can be seen in ABC News Live's recurring "It's Not Too Late" segments, which focus on the solutions to climate change. She also hosts an ABC News original digital series, "Food Forecast," focused on climate and its impact on agriculture.

Zee has covered almost every major weather event and dozens of historic storms for the past fifteen years—from Hurricane Katrina to Hurricane Sandy and Michael; from the Australian wildfires to the climate’s impact on Victoria Falls, Africa; and the aftermath of tornadoes all over the United States, most notably those in Moore and El Reno, Oklahoma. She’s covered blizzards in Boston and record-breaking heat in Death Valley. She not only shares her passion for meteorology but, more importantly, presents the compassion and human side of these storms.

Having storm-chased since college, Zee has a genuine love for the atmosphere and a dedication to getting young people interested in science. She has written a STEM trilogy called "Chasing Helicity" for middle grades, which follows a stormchasing a young woman named Helicity across the U.S. learning about science and life.

The Emmy and Murrow Award-winning meteorologist attended Valparaiso University and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in meteorology. She served as an adjunct professor at her alma mater from 2008 to 2011. Zee also holds the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist seal from the American Meteorological Society. Zee was inducted into the Weather Hall of Fame in Oklahoma in 2020.

She lives with her husband and two sons in New York.
