4 p.m. and 10 p.m. Anchor
Neda Iranpour has wanted to cover news in San Diego since she was a child. She spent much of her life surfing and running along the San Diego shoreline, while her late grandmother would watch. They would rush home together every night to watch the local news.
Most of her family now lives in America’s Finest City, so it truly is a dream come true for Neda to anchor alongside Jim Patton and Sabrina Fein every weekday at 4 and 10 p.m. on CW6.
Neda Iranpour is an Emmy-award winning reporter, anchor and weathercaster. She’s been in the news business for more than a decade and dedicates her life to inform, inspire and entertain viewers every day.
Just before moving to San Diego, Neda was working at CBS13 in Sacramento, Calif. where she was a reporter and weathercaster. She also filled in as morning anchor, reporter and weathercaster on Good Day Sacramento. Neda also spent nearly five years (during two stints) at KTVN in Reno, Nev. where she was the morning anchor and a reporter. She most recently was working seven days a week between both cities. “When you do what you love, it never feels like work,” Neda said.
At CBS13 she won an Emmy award for a piece on professional snowboarders who filmed their tricks throughout Tahoe to create viral videos. She has also received four Emmy-nominations and five Associated Press awards.
Neda has covered stories ranging from Nevada’s first legalized distillery to the Oakland riots. One of her proudest moments was after interviewing Kyle Bryant, a man with Friedreich’s Ataxia. His disease has no cure, but his drive is contagious. She trained for Ride Ataxia, a 68-mile bike ride through Davis, Calif. to raise awareness and thousands of dollars to cure Friedreich’s Ataxia.
Neda is a proud Longhorn, graduating from the University of Texas at Austin with a business degree. During college, she interned at CNN and was the University of Texas reporter for Fox in Austin – just for fun. She quickly realized her “fun” job should be her “real” job. Neda’s career started at KUSI in San Diego where she wrote and ran the teleprompter, then KSWT in Yuma where she did every job in the newsroom – photographer, reporter, weathercaster, anchor, producer and even sportscaster. She also worked at Adelphia Headline News in Carlsbad before working in Reno and Sacramento. She was also a morning radio host for WILD 102.9’s Wild Wake Up Show.
Neda traveled to Kenya to donate shoes to orphans with a non-profit called “Think Kindness.” She has volunteered and raised thousands of dollars for Big Brother Big Sisters, American Cancer Society, Leukemia Lymphoma Society, Special Olympics, Multiple Sclerosis research, the Boys and Girls Club, and curing Friedreich’s Ataxia.
Neda has completed several marathons and half marathons, enjoying the rush of crossing the finish line with the best of friends. Her most memorable finish line was after she recently ran three marathons in three days around Lake Tahoe. She was proposed to just as she completed the 78.6 miles. She also earned first place and WBFF pro status during an International Fitness competition. She has since become a certified personal trainer, aerobics instructor and nutrition geek!
