WMUR’s Haley LaPoint, May 2
Born and raised north of Topsfield, Mass., Haley LaPoint has been interested in weather since she was a young child. She would often spend hours in front of the family camcorder with a large map pointing out the next big weather system coming up the coast.
Today as a meteorologist for WMUR, LaPoint reports live from active weather situations and produces special weather content for TV, mobile and the WMUR website. Join us as she discusses forecasting New Hampshire weather Wednesday, May 2 at 6:30 p.m. in Taylor Community’s Woodside Building. This free event is open to the public.
LaPoint began her career in Fargo, N.D., at KVLY-TV & KXJB-TV. While in Fargo, she received the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist seal from the American Meteorological Society – the first TV meteorologist to receive this seal in the Fargo television market. The CBM seal, as it’s known, is a newer, more rigorous certification. She carries this distinct certification with her to WMUR. In 2013, LaPoint was elected to the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Board of Broadcast Meteorologists.Posted in: Events, News
