2000-2006 for me  :biggrin:
Add on 2007, and count me in :biggrin:

I liked 2007 the best too, especially the September 2007 Local Forecast playlist

1986 until 2001. During that 15-year period, though, if I could give a single year, I'd say 1989 was my favorite, simply because it was my first, almost full year of watching The Weather Channel. 1990 was technically my first full year of watching The Weather Channel.

BTW Brian, I love that quote on your signature. I vividly remember hearing that following the Michelin-sponsored Travel Wise segments in the late 90's... "because so much is riding on your tires." :D

1996, still had the "friend next door" attitude, but was adding a more professional style.

I would have to say that TWC's best year was 1995. That was the year when large tornado outbreaks occured in the Plains, "Exposures" was the show to watch on weekends, and the LOT8s were even more catchy than they are now. Plus they had classic OCMs and severe weather experts, not saying the ones we see now aren't good :-)

1991-1995.  Great local forecast packages and the OCMs were great.

My favorite years were 2000-2001, and 2004-2008.

1999-2008 are my favorite years. The LF and the OCMs are the most memorable.

2003. However, 2000-June 2, 2008 were all good.

To me, any time before June 2009 was good.

Anytime in the 1990s.

Most of the focus was on the weather, and the Local Forecasts were generated by the WeatherSTAR 4000 (or a STAR XL in the late '90s) if you lived in a large city, or a STAR 3000, or Jr. if you lived in a small town. Other segments included Business/Weekend Travel Forecasts, Tropical Updates, and Business Planners.

I'm going to say 91-96. It's as if everything came together beautifully during that period.

For me, it was the "Live By It" era, and the year of 2008.
That's about it for me.
