Meteorologist

Sophia Armata was born and raised in Atlanta, GA before moving to Birmingham, AL where she finished out her high school years. She recently graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor of Science in Geosciences with a concentration in Broadcast Meteorology. While in college, Sophia balanced her school work with a weekend morning meteorologist position at WTVA in Tupelo, MS. In her free time, Sophia tutored Mississippi State athletes in science and geography courses.

Sophia is excited to be in Richmond and work with the team at NBC12! Since she is fairly new to the area, if you have any restaurant/activity recommendations... feel free to reach out to her on social media!
