The Weather Channel is sending meteorologist Mike Bettes back out to chase tornadoes less than a year after he was hurt when an Oklahoma storm sent his SUV tumbling, but this time from a safer vantage point.
The Weather Channel is returning to DirecTV with a significant compromise that affects all of its viewers: it promises to focus more on the weather.
Sam Champion is trying to deliver more than a weather forecast.
Since arriving in Atlanta just a few weeks ago, Sam Champion hasn't had much time to take in the local color, other than the overwhelming whiteness of snowstorms.
A sudden change in the weather means real money for Paul Falavolito. When a snowstorm rolls in, the chief of a small, non-profit ambulance service in White Oak, Pa., has to keep paramedics in ambulance bays longer. If there's a break in the weather, he can let idling crews go home rather than paying them overtime.
Atlanta's mayor is defending his use of emergency lanes at the height of Tuesday's icy traffic jam so he could do an interview at The Weather Channel's studios.
About 20 million DirecTV customers nationwide lost The Weather Channel because of a dispute over fees between the channel and the satellite service.
DirecTV satellite executives have given the boot to the Weather Channel, a dramatic decision that caps weeks of contentious contract disputes that included a meteorologist-driven push to paint the television provider as unconcerned with Americans’ welfare.
The Weather Channel asked its viewers Saturday to urge Congress to intervene in its business dispute with DirecTV, arguing that it can harm public safety if the satellite system pulls the network off the air for nearly 20 million viewers.
President Obama hit the links and enjoyed high temps in Hawaii as a massive blizzard bore down on much of the Midwest and the Northeast, and meteorologists predict the storm could tie traffic, cut power and give headaches to 40 million or so Americans.
The next time meteorologist Mike Bettes talks about the power of tornadoes on The Weather Channel, he can speak from personal experience.
You can call it a snowstorm of historic proportions. You can call it the return of New England's blizzard of 1978. You can call it simply dangerous. And you can even call it Nemo.
For me, climate change is a serious issue. No, I'm not referring to the debate over global warming. My concerns are much simpler. I'm constantly checking the weather for the hours and days ahead because deciding to hike on a rainy day or neglecting to dress warmly can put a damper on a vacation.
To people who were caught in snarled traffic or had to shovel snow with leaves still on the trees, the storm pulling off the East Coast on Thursday was your basic nor'easter.
Mary J. Blige was added to the bill of NBC's Friday telethon benefiting victims of superstorm Sandy, and HBO has agreed to televise it.
