Longtime Alabama Meteorologist Alan Sealls Retiring

By Kevin Eck 

WPMI chief meteorologist Alan Sealls is retiring from the Mobile, Ala., NBC affiliate.

Sealls worked at Mobile’s CBS affiliate WKRG for 20 years, before joining WPMI in 2019.

“I’m so appreciative of the community support over the decades, as I’ve enjoyed supporting the community. While I’m exiting TV, I’m not exiting Mobile! This is home, now. I’ve got friends and neighbors who are like family,” Sealls said. “Aside from being on social media, I’ll keep on teaching at the University of South Alabama, visiting schools, and writing for Lagniappe Newspaper, with more time to do my other weather and life endeavors.”


Sealls has also worked at NBC and WGN in Chicago and at WTMJ-TV and Radio in Milwaukee. He began his career in Albany, Georgia, at WALB. His career as a meteorologist is featured in a children’s book Capturing the Sky: The True Story of How Alan Sealls Became the Best Weatherman Ever.

“Alan is an incredibly accomplished, well-respected meteorologist and a beloved member of the community in Mobile. His contributions to the market, and to the industry as a whole, are legendary and he will be greatly missed. We wish him the very best in his next chapter,” said Cory Culleton, WPMI’s vice president and associate group manager.
