Univision New York is expanding its weather team with the addition of Stephanie Vies to its rotation of weather presenters.
From today, Stephanie Vies joins the station’s existing team of weather anchors to elevate the on-air weather content as well as on the station’s digital and social media platforms.
Vies will join the “Noticias 41 A Las 6PM” and “Noticias 41 Solo a las Once” evening broadcasts as weather anchor. Additionally, she will also work on special weather-related reports throughout the year via the station’s cutting-edge studio technology which was first unveiled in early 2019.
“Weather is one of our audience’s most important priorities and we are excited to add Stephanie to our strong roster of weather anchors. She will enhance our weather coverage by going beyond forecasts and breaking news to also provide our audience with the necessary context surrounding the ongoing climate issues affecting our state and region,” said Esteban Creste, VP of News at Univision New York.
“It is an honor and a privilege to join such a trusted news team in the Big Apple,” said Vies. “Univision 41 has served as the most important news resource for the Latino community in the greater New York area for over five decades, and I look forward to helping to continue that legacy by keeping our audience informed and engaged about the weather news they need to navigate their daily lives.”
A native of Belgium, Vies speaks five languages and has a degree in International Relations from The City College of New York as well as a weather forecasting certificate from Penn State University. Vies was most recently at NY1 Noticias where she served as a field producer before moving into on-air reporting for eight years. According to her Twitter profile, Vies is also a real estate agent.
