Mark Shanaberger

MeteorologistMark Shanaberger joined the WFMZ Weather Team in June of 2006. He can be seen afternoons and evenings on the AccuWeather Channel and from 4 to 5 PM weekdays on the 69 News at 4 PM.

Mark began his television career at WAGM, which was Northern Maine's CBS-affiliate at the time. While at WAGM, he primarily worked as the Morning Meteorologist, but also spent time co-anchoring and reporting.

Mark received his meteorology degree from Penn State, where he was an active member in the Campus Weather Service and also served as a weekly forecaster on CNET, a local cable channel. He became a member of the American Meteorological Society during his college years and is still a member today.

While Mark grew-up in the Wyoming Valley, he has very close ties to Allentown and the surrounding area. In fact, other than Mark and his sister, everyone in his family is native to the region. He says living in the Lehigh Valley has afforded him the opportunity to spend more time with his extended family for the first time in his life.

In his free-time, Mark enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter, dog, family and friends as well as watching and playing sports, listening to music, reading, working out and spending time outdoors.
