NEW YORK (AP) - The Weather Channel has a new chief executive, and he's forecasting expansion overseas.

The Weather Channel Cos. said Tuesday it was appointing veteran digital executive David Kenny as its new chairman and chief executive. Kenny succeeds Mike Kelly, who will be a special adviser to the company.
