WeatherNation TV Adds WVIR Charlottesville
Multi-format, local, regional and national television weather news service WeatherNation TV Inc. announced today that NBC affiliate WVIR Charlottesville, Va. (DMA 183), will broadcast 24/7 weather news on its 29.2 subchannel and on Comcast ch. 208 and Lumos ch. 17.
“We’re happy to expand the coverage of WVIR-TV’s StormTeam 29 with an extension of Central Virginia’s most complete local, regional and national weather coverage through WeatherNation,” said Harold Wright, VP-GM of WVIR. “Weather can be dangerous at times. Aligning our StormTeam 29 with the resources of WeatherNation gives us access to some of the country’s top professional meteorologists when it matters most.”
News Director David Foky added: “Because we’re so close to both the mountains and the ocean, the weather here is tricky to predict. That’s why we invest in the best people and technologies to make sure we’re tracking storms accurately. That’s also why it’s perfect to team up with WeatherNation to provide our viewers in-depth weather coverage on channel 29.2. Through this partnership, our viewers will get local weather updates every 10 minutes from our experienced meteorologists and the regional and national updates from WeatherNation.”
