The Weather Channel is about more than just the weather

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 16th 2005 7:35PM

Do you watch The Weather Channel? Are you one of those people who can't enough info about high pressure systems and hurricanes? Today is your lucky day. Besides changing their logo (gasp!), the network is creating some new programming to broaden their viewership. They are going to have a morning news program, a regular news broadcast (with a non-weatherman anchor!), and even a Top Ten special, where they'll countdown the snowiest cities, most humid cities, and all that.

More programming? OK. But please don't subject us to some weather reality show. Maybe 10 budding meteorologists stay in a wind tunnel for a month, subjected to all sorts of weather, and the winner gets a Weather Channel gig? Actually, I'd watch that.

Oh I'll give them ideas... How about "Storm Systems, Where are They Now?" El Nino, Hurricane Hugo, etc. Now if they could do something about that website...

I've known this was in the works for a while now, but that new logo is a real shocker. Let's recap: they're replacing an almost-meaningless logo from 1982 (but that looks like it's from 1973) with a totally meaningless logo from 2005 (but that looks like it's from 1994). Wow.
