Now that's interesting. I knew there was a reason that I'm no longer glued to TWC. Nothing like pushing your own agenda to make some $$, is there?

I hope NBC encourages them to stop talking about Atlanta all the time. Did anyone happen to watch TWC tonight? I know that Atlanta had a pretty bad storm go through, but so did a good chunk of the South. It hailed here much earlier. And there were deadly tornadoes all over the place. Instead, they're showing Stephanie Abrams on a bridge, showing pictures of the fingertip-sized hail down there...they had the president of the Braves on the air (I can understand concerns over the baseball game)...I just wish they would get with the program and either stop focusing on Atlanta or just name the flippin' channel The Atlanta Channel.

And I miss Cheryl Lemke terribly!!!

I agree with you. The Weather Channel started out with a bang and now it has morphed into so many entertainment programs. I personally want to see the present weather when I change stations to The Weather and I am totally not interested in seeing storms that have happened in the past or disasters that may occur in the future!!!!

Smile NBC buys Weather Channel

Txbiobabe : I agree with you.
I also miss watching Dave Schwarts on the Weather Channel.
I do like most all of their on air Meteorologists though.
I think Dave Schwarts has some kind of weather blog link now.
If he ever sets up a Facebook Profile I`ll join it.
A few Weather Channel Meteorologists already have a Facebook Profile and I have all ready joined those.

I also miss Dave Schwartz. I remember watching him late at night a few years back. His clicker stopped working while on air. Rather than panic, he simply made a joke out of it and put the clicker up to his face, joking that he was shaving with it. They cut to a commercial but when they came back onto the air, he and the other meteorologist on air with him were trying so hard not to laugh that they were practically turning blue. It was classic! I was laughing right along with them!

I also miss the old weather Channel. I wonder how the changes have affected their ratings? I hope that NBC wakes up and realizes that they have made some mistakes, and that it's better to leave what's been working well for all of these years alone!
