Kristi Capel Profile

Kristi Capel Career
Capel serves as FOX8 News’ morning anchor. She had a wonderful chance to intern in Cincinnati, Ohio, at WCPO while in college. She secured a second internship at KSPR News in Springfield, Missouri, in her senior year where she started her first job as a reporter. They were in search of a weekend weather anchor after a few short months of reporting explosions, injuries, and local affairs, so she hopped into the driver’s seat and started her weather career. From there as a morning and midday meteorologist, she went to work in Northeast and Central PA.
In 2001, Kristi transferred to Missouri to attend Evangel University on a volleyball scholarship, obtaining a degree in Broadcasting & Communications along with Public Relations. She received the title of ‘Miss Missouri USA 2006’ after graduation from college, and had a great chance to represent Missouri at the ‘2006 Miss USA Pageant.’
Spring 2007 was packed with months of ‘Flying Pig Marathon’ preparation for Cincinnati. A distance of 26.2 miles was such an achievement, and maybe she’ll put her running shoes back on with a little spare time down the line. For influential citizens who have excelled in their careers and societies in Northeast & Central PA, Kristi was awarded “The Times Leader’s 40 Under Forty”.
Whenever she has the opportunity, Kristi enjoys being involved in the culture. She was part of Go Red For Women,” The Miracle Network for Girls,’ and the ‘American Diabetes Association.’ It is such a blessing to be a member of the culture in Northeast Ohio, and she is looking forward to seeing all that Cleveland has to offer. She loves spending her spare time with family while she’s not at work, soaking up the sun in the summer, reading, researching the weather, working out, running 5k, skiing, and watching football.
