Alan Sealls Biography – Alan Sealls Wiki
Alan Sealls is an American television meteorologist and educator. He worked as chief meteorologist for WKRG-TV in Mobile, Alabama for twenty years. He is a holder of bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Cornell University and Florida State, respectively. Previously, he worked at television stations in Georgia, Wisconsin, and Illinois before settling in Mobile in 1999. He is a ten-time Emmy Award-winner and is a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society, a distinction held by a small fraction of meteorologists. In 2017, his weather forecasting for Hurricane Irma went viral on social media, leading to national news coverage. He started his career in broadcasting at WALB-TV in Albany, Georgia. From 1988 to 1992, he worked at WTMJ-TV/AM in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After that, he worked at Chicago’s WGN-TV for five years – that was inclusive of national exposure on WGN’s superstation feed – and then at WMAQ-TV; he also taught meteorology classes at Columbia College Chicago.
He moved south to Mobile in 1999, where he joined WKRG-TV. According to the news station’s website, he teaches weather broadcasting at the University of South Alabama each spring. Additionally, he has produced over four dozen weather videos for schools, distributed throughout North America. In 2017, a segment of his updating viewers on Hurricane Irma went viral on social media, topping the front page of Reddit and becoming the third most trending clip on YouTube. A number of commenters praised his calm, patient demeanor, likening his delivery to Bob Ross or Mr. Rogers. The clips attracted news coverage from The Washington Post. For him, the moment was gratifying: “It was amazing that something that I’ve always done, the exact same way, suddenly went viral. It was a positive thing, because most things that start trending on the internet are, in my opinion, either goofy or silly or somehow embarrassing – things that don’t necessarily have value in the long run. But this is one where people got excited about science, they got excited about learning, so to me, that was a really wonderful thing.”
In 2019, he left WKRG after being unable to negotiate a contract renewal. He confirmed his plans to “remain active both in the community and as a meteorologist.” On November 19th, 2019, an announcement was made that he would be returning to the airwaves starting in January 2020 on WPMI-TV. He is a holder of his professional certifications from the AMS (American Meteorological Society) and the NWA (National Weather Association). He is a Fellow of the AMS—”a distinction held by a small fraction of meteorologists,” according to WKRG. At the present, he is a Councilor for the AMS, he has served as an NWA Seal Panelist, and then Chairman; a Councilor for the NWA and as a Board Chair for the AMS Seal. He is also on the NWA Diversity Committee and acts as an NWA mentor. He is a ten-time regional Emmy Award-winner and won a national award from the AMS in 2009 for a series on climate change. In 2015, he received a best-in-state award for his documentary retrospective on Hurricane Ivan. In 2017, he received a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. award for community service from People United to Advance the Dream.
