Sheli Muñiz is back home in South Florida, where she says she is "blessed to tell my community's stories." Sheli co-anchors NBC 6 South Florida Today weekdays from 4:30-7 a.m. and 11 a.m. alongside Eric Harryman, meteorologist Ryan Phillips and traffic reporter, Kelly Blanco.
Her passion for morning television began in the library of her elementary school - the location of a makeshift studio. She was the morning show anchor, reporting on the lunch menu.
Fast forward a number X of years and Sheli again has a bedtime before the street lights come on. But she gets to wake up and do what she loves -- helping you wake up with a smile and an inspiring story.
Sheli comes to NBC 6 from WKMG-News 6 (CBS) in Orlando, Florida where she worked as an anchor and reporter for three years. While in Orlando, she covered stories that have garnered national attention: a sinkhole that swallowed a man in his Seffner home, a mother of three accused of driving her children into the Atlantic, and the George Zimmerman murder trial. In the summer of 2015, she was sent to Cuba to report on the U.S. and Cuba policy change.
Sheli is a proud University of Florida grad whose passion for journalism led her to Augusta, Georgia where she was promoted to weekend anchor in the first month.
She has been recognized by the Georgia Association of Broadcasters for her exclusive interview with a serial rapist who led multiple agencies on a three-county manhunt. She was also honored with a Georgia AP Broadcasters Award for best feature reporting.
Sheli says the greatest reward, though, is her family and the ability to drive a short distance to West Palm Beach for mom's Arroz con Gandules. Speaking of food, she loves it. Always on the lookout for great restaurants ... and a passport stamp. So, any suggestions? Send them over.
