Tina Patel

Reporter
KMIR6 (NBC), Palm Springs, CA
Market Rank 144

Bio:

Tina will be the first one to tell you she has the best job at KMIR. As the reporter for KMIR 6 Today, she gets to meet new people and explore new places in the valley every morning. If you wake up early, maybe you’ve seen some of her more unusual assignments: flying in a fighter jet over Thermal, jumping into the lake at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, skydiving in an indoor tunnel in Perris, swimming with Beluga whales at Sea World, play with meerkats in Morongo Valley, hanging out with Al Roker on the set of Heroes, and reporting live from the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

Tina may be willing to make a fool of herself for our enjoyment, but she is also a serious journalist with more than ten years in the news business. She’s been a reporter and anchor in the Inland Empire, Texas and the U.S. Virgin Islands. A New Jersey native, she graduated from the University of Southern California and met her husband at her first job at KCAL-TV in Los Angeles.
