Al Kaprielian Biography – Al Kaprielian Wiki
Al Kaprielian is a journalist and meteorologist in New Hampshire. He is famously known for the 20+ years he has spent at Channel 50, a broadcast television station in Derry, New Hampshire. One journalist described him as a Kult of Kaprielian due to his distinctive voice and eccentric mannerisms, which included squeaky, high-pitched exclamations of “high pressure!” and “good evening!”; a distinct New England accent; sound effects reminiscent of Curly Howard; swinging his arms in circles rapidly and performing jumping jacks on camera. At one point during the Christmas season of 1999 the station even offered him tree ornaments.
His career at the station began in 1983 and survived several changes in station ownership. The run was interrupted on December 31, 2009, when, as part of many changes at the station, he as well as most other on-air talents at the station was let go. He found employment doing forecasts for Manchester Public Television Service, the online site of the Nashua Telegraph newspaper, and radio station WCAP-AM (980) in Lowell, Massachusetts. After yet another change in ownership at the station, he went back to Channel 50 in August 2012, doing hourly updates from 2 pm to 9 pm. As of 2015, he is no longer with WBIN-TV; he currently forecasts for WLMW/Manchester, New Hampshire.
When he is not broadcasting weather information, he travels to local schools. In such visits, he teaches students about science and meteorology. He can also be found at local community events such as the Lowell Folk Festival, the Dracut Scholarship Foundation’s Telethon, and the Derry News Cookie Eating Contest. He was also a feature celebrity judge at the 2009 Hampton Beach Seafood Festival and attends the festival each year.
He is a graduate of Lyndon State College, Lyndonville, Vermont. He was awarded the “Best Weather Forecaster” in the Nashua Telegraph’s 2004 Reader’s Choice Awards. He has also been voted Best Media Personality and Best Weatherperson in New Hampshire Magazine’s, The Very Best of New Hampshire Reader Choice Awards.
