of "Good Morning America." Additionally, Zee reports across all ABC News broadcasts and digital platforms and also serves as chief meteorologist for ABC News. Since joining ABC News, Zee has covered almost every major weather event and dozens of historic storms. She broadcasted from the devastated Jersey Shore during Hurricane Sandy, the Colorado floods and wildfires, and covered the wreckage from tornados in Moore and El Reno, Oklahoma. In 2013, she covered extreme weather conditions, ranging from the Boston blizzard to the record-breaking heat in Death Valley.

Zee's love of adventure does not stop at studying the atmosphere in the center of the storm. She has gone para-hawking in Nepal, para-glided from the Himalayas to the Andes, dove with sharks in the Bahamas, rappelled 27 stories down the exterior facade of the Wit Hotel in Chicago, plus has gone ice boat racing and surfing.

Prior to joining ABC News, she was a meteorologist at NBC station WMAQ-Channel 5 in Chicago from 2006-2011, also filling in for several NBC and MSNBC News programs. Before that assignment, Zee worked at WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where she part of the Storm Team 8, also covering the environment, science and the impact of weather throughout West Michigan. From 2003-2005, Zee worked at WEYI NBC 25 in Flint, Michigan. She began her career at WLAV FM/ WXMI in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Ginger Zee is a new addition to Reed Timmer's team TVN this year. An Emmy-winning weathercaster for NBC 5 in Chicago, Illinois, Ginger's passion for extreme weather began while growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Though this will be her first time riding in the Dominator, Ginger has previous storm chasing experience. While studying to get her B.S. in Meteorology from Valparaiso University, she was a member of the school's Storm Intercept Team, a group that chased extreme weather across the United States—including a 5000 mile storm chase spanning the country. Ginger and Reed have a budding romance, and the only way she can see him during the busy storm season is to buckle up and come along for the ride.
