Naveen Dhaliwal
Since she was a young girl, Naveen Dhaliwal wanted to be a journalist. And that professional journey has a very personal side. To follow her passion, she gave up a career as a speech pathologist and went back to school. After working in various markets across the country, Naveen landed at Eyewitness News as a reporter in February 2018. Her dream job.

Before joining WABC, Naveen was the morning show anchor/reporter with News 12 Westchester, where she spent countless hours on the desk during storm coverage and the MTA's deadliest train crash in Valhalla in 2015.

She started her journalism career at WETM- TV in Elmira, NY, where she was an anchor, reporter, and producer. In 2009, she covered the Binghamton American Civic Association massacre extensively.

Naveen's passion for breaking news and weather was solidified during her years at KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City, where she was a field reporter and a storm chaser during deadly tornado outbreaks. A defining moment in her career occurred in May 2013 when she worked 19 days straight following the deadly Moore and El Reno tornadoes, telling stories of heartbreak, survival, and resilience. For her, it's always about the people.

Outside of work, Naveen likes to read, travel, spend time with friends and dogs. Her favorite saying is: Find a job you love and you won't work a day in your life.

Naveen is still a licensed speech pathologist, is fluent in Punjabi, and loves winter in the Big Apple. After all, she's from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
