Woah! Did anyone else see that major LOT8's blooper?
Umm, what happened? Doesn't help to say 'did anyone see that?' without explaining what 'that' is.

Looks like someone doesn't know how to spell one of the most familiar faces in meteorology...and the most familiar face and meteorologist at TWC. Just goes to show the carelessness TWC has toward its OCM's.

I'm pretty sure it was probably a small careless mistake while they were tirelessly making the graphics.

Is that typo like that on all IntelliStars though?

If not, for all we know, it could just be the IntelliStar's character omission/corruption/change glitch. It's been around for as long as possible, and only happens in rare cases.

Tropical Storm Hanna Local Forecast 3 - 9/5/08 10:58pm


Notice how the C's on the advisory crawl got turned into small 6's... that's one example of said glitch.

Looks like the High Risk Live Shot warning is still in effect  :pinch:

At 11:00 AM the WCL opener was good until they crossed to Mike Siedel where before I heard a producer say 'MSNBC' and then Mike started talking, then stopped and then started again and eventually they just dissolved into the WCL open.

Also a minor blooper, when they crossed to Lowry (the hurricane guy) his mic was off  :o

During WCL this AM a still image of Mike Seidel kept appearing on screen when the lower thirds went on and off the screen.
