The Day in the life of a TV Meteorologist

Alan Sealls
Chief Meteorologist, WKRG
Mobile, AL

(biography)

A meteorologist is in your house every day, if you watch TV news. From helping you to plan a weekend to preparing you for dangerous weather, TV meteorologists are loved and sometimes hated. Weather broadcasting is a unique profession because it combines communications, science, performance, community service, computer skills, and teamwork. You might only watch your favorite meteorologist for a few minutes each day. What do most TV meteorologists do with the rest of their work day? Alan Sealls shows and tells, and covers the skills and training needed to become a weather broadcaster. It can be a very rewarding job but it’s not for everyone!
