Fox Weather has shaken up the landscape of TV meteorology since its October launch, accelerating competition on this crucial news front. Sharri Berg, the new streaming channel’s president, along with meteorologists Amy Freeze and Craig Herrera, will lay out how Fox plans to disrupt the industry in A Change In Weather: Behind Fox’s New Streaming Channel, the keynote interview for TVNewsCheck’s NewsTECHForum conference on Dec. 14.

The three will be interviewed by TVNewsCheck Editor Michael Depp at 10 a.m. ET at the conference, which will be presented in person at the New York Hilton as well as virtually.

“Fox Weather is a shot across the bow for the TV news industry and its launch sets the stage for a major battle with competitors,” Depp said. “This interview will look at all sides of the operation, from its programming to the technology underpinning it and its marketplace strategy. We’ll go as in-depth as it gets under the hood of this new channel and what it means for the TV weather space.”

In-person attendees will be required to show proof of complete vaccination and extensive COVID safety protocols will be in place on site for the event, which will be co-located with Sports Video Group’s annual summit.

Panels will explore a wide range of the industry’s most pressing challenges and exciting technological opportunities. They will include News Operations in a Changed World; The Cloud and the Future of News Production; Reinventing the Live Shot; Remote Production and the Future of News Storytelling; and News Technology and Combatting Disinformation.

Attendees will have access to a Technology Showcase featuring socially distanced exhibits hosted by companies including Grass Valley, Ross Video, TVU and others. Attendees will also have access to sessions at the Sports Video Group Summit, which is co-located with NewsTECHForum.
