Natasha Stenbock, Weathercaster

Natasha found herself falling in love with San Diego in 2001 with her first broadcasting job. She was the weekend news, traffic and weather voice for Metro Networks. They say life comes full circle, well that's true for Natasha. While she was in radio, she had the opportunity to voice over a commercial for KGTV. Ten years later, she's walking through the doors of Channel 10 once again, this time with a long list of experience under her belt.

After earning her BA in Telecommunications at Pepperdine University she jumped into radio, then TV. KRCR in Redding embraced Natasha in her first TV reporting job. She made tracks south to forecast weather at KGET in Bakersfield, and then back to San Diego where she became the morning weather anchor for KFMB. Now at KGTV, Natasha admits she is addicted to the San Diego lifestyle and can't imagine being more than a few miles from her friends, a really good runway, and the ocean.

San Diego became the place for many "firsts" in Natasha's life. She studied meteorology through Mississippi State University's online broadcast meteorology program and received the AMS (American Meteorological Society) seal of approval. Natasha was nominated for an Emmy by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for an environmental series; one of her passions is environmental reporting. Perhaps, the biggest contributor to the excitement in her life ... her private pilot certificate. Natasha earned her pilot license in 2008 and joined the San Diego Ninety-Nines to live and breathe aviation with her fellow women pilots. She is the 2011 recipient of the 99s Amelia Earhart Memorial Scholarship Fund for the instrument rating, perhaps one of the most critical ratings a pilot can have.

Natasha doesn't boast much but she is proud of her many flying opportunities in her broadcasting career. Here are the bragging rights: She flew in the backseat of the Thunderbirds F-16, with Maj. Tad Clark pulling 9.2 G's, earned her "Red Bull wings" in the Edge 540 doing the air race pylon routine, flew with North America's only aerobatic helicopter pilot Chuck Aaron doing, yes, aerobatics in a customized helicopter, and trapped in a C-2A on the USS Ronald Reagan. The list is much longer but she doesn't want to bore you or make you aviation buffs jealous.

Natasha is also passionate about raising money for ocean conservation organizations and raising the level of meteorological understanding in aviation. She is a volunteer diver, AAUS certified, at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. You may even find her diving in the big kelp tank at Birch Aquarium at Scripps. She speaks to the aviation community about forecasting weather for flying, and supports fellow female pilots through the San Diego Ninety-Nines. She assists in Angel Flight missions across Southern California and hopes to gain additional ratings and certificates to serve in a greater capacity.
