Sherene Tagharobi, Reporter
Sherene couldn't be happier to be doing what she loves in beautiful San Diego. After three cold Michigan winters, this California girl is thrilled to be closer to home!
Sherene comes to NBC 7 after reporting for WWMT in Western Michigan and WILX, an NBC affiliate, in Lansing, Michigan's capital city. In Lansing, she covered state politics, filling in on the anchor desk often. Her reporting also helped the station win a Michigan Association of Broadcasters award for “Best Newscast.” Sherene has interviewed newsmakers such as Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, Ron Paul and Ann Romney.
Sherene fell in love with journalism in high school, writing for and eventually becoming editor of her school paper. She learned early on what a privilege it is to tell people’s stories, and that passion drives her every day. She loves getting to meet people from all walks of life.
Sherene graduated cum laude from the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School of Journalism as a renaissance scholar with a double major in Broadcast Journalism and International Relations and a minor in Spanish. She also studied abroad in Madrid, Spain.
While at USC, Sherene reported, produced, and anchored news and weather for the award-winning Annenberg TV News. She covered everything from Conrad Murray’s arraignment to California State University budget cuts to President Obama’s visit to Los Angeles.
While not on the job, Sherene enjoys spending time with friends and family, doing yoga, surfing, and exploring San Diego!
