Biography

Jackie Guerrido (born on 24 September 1970 (1970-09-24) (age 37) in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico) is a television weatherperson and journalist.

Guerrido was raised and educated in San Juan, Puerto Rico. After graduating from high school, she moved with her family to the Bronx section of New York City.

Guerrido was offered a job on a morning radio show called El Vacilon de la MaƱana ("Goofing Around in the Morning"), transmitted through "MEGA 97.9", by a producer who heard her doing a voice-over. She soon received an offer from the radio station "Romance 106.7 FM" in Miami, Florida, which she accepted.

Guerrido settled down in Miami and she joined the HBC Radio Company, after working at "Romance" for a year. There she was given the opportunity to co-host a radio program with the duties of broadcasting news and traffic conditions. Eventually, she was given her own music show at Salsa 98.3 FM. She also landed a job in television as a traffic reporter for Telemundo Channel 51, working for both the radio and television at the same time.

Univision took notice of Guerrido and offered her a job as a weatherperson on the TV show Al Amanacer de Noticias 23 ("Morning News at Channel 23"). She was totally unaware of what her job really required and took a course in meteorology at the University of Florida.

Guerrido is currently the weatherperson for Despierta America ("Wake Up America"), which is one of the most popular television programs among the Hispanic community in the United States, and she has been a weather reporter on Primer Impacto ("First Impact") with Barbara Bermudo. She is a student of journalism at the University of Florida.

In 2004, Guerrido was named the "Good Will Ambassador" of the Puerto Rican Day Parade celebrated in New York City. As of July 2007, she has been dating Puerto Rican Reggaeton singer/rapper Don Omar.
