Favorite classic slogan
« on: March 03, 2009, 10:07:40 AM »
Which of TWC's classic slogans is your favorite? To refresh your memory, the slogans were:

-You Need Us For Everything You Do
-Weather You Can Always Turn To
-No Place on Earth Has Better Weather
-Weather Fans, Your Not Alone

My favorite is Weather You Can Always Turn To. It's the first one I ever saw (started watching in 92), and there were alot of big weather events during that time period (like Andrew and the 93 Super Storm).

"Weather You Can Always Turn To" was my favorite as well.  There's a reason why that's still the longest-running slogan of TWC. ;)  By the way, you missed two from way back in the 80's that need to be added to your list of pre-2000 slogans:  "We Take The Weather Seriously, But Not Ourselves" and "Weatherproofing America".

From those mentioned Weather You Can Always Turn To was my favorite.  I know its not early enough to be in this category but Live By It is my personal fav from all time.

My all-time favorite is "You Need Us, For Everything You Do." I even love second version of the theme music.
Never storm chase and play Pokémon GO at the same time!

No Place on Earth. At that point, TWC rescued their flagging 5-year-old graphics package and did a 180-degree relaunch that wouldn't be seen for another 11-12 years (the 1996-97 relaunch and new studios were a 180-degree relaunch, as was the HD relaunch).

Humm... I'm split between "You need us for everything you do" and "Weather you can always turn to" but I think I like the first one better because of the jingle.

My favorite classic slogan would be No Place On Earth Has Better Weather.
There's hopes for TWC to be good again

Sorry for bringing up an old topic, but I have to say my favorite classic slogan is "You Need Us For Everything You Do". That was the first one I ever saw. There were also some big weather events during this period, such as the Saragosa, Texas tornado (May 1987), the 1988 drought, Hurricane Gilbert (September 1988), Hurricane Hugo (September 1989), the cold wave of December 1989 and playlists of beautiful music. "Weather You Can Always Turn To" a close second.

Again, sorry for bumping an old topic, but my favorite slogan is "Live by it". That was during the WeatherSTAR XL v2 era. It was also the first time I used the TWC Desktop app. There's not much to say about the weather, however.

Well actually "You Need Us For Everything You Do" Was used until early 1991 Before they did there "Weather You Can Always Turn To" Relaunch :)
