Daytime/Weather Center Live Shakeup
« on: April 06, 2016, 11:29:28 AM »
Starting this week, several changes have been made that effects the TWC weekday schedule from 9am and onwards.  From what I've seen and noticed online, it appears the new schedule is (all times eastern):

9:00am-11:00am:  Weather Center Live, with Keith Carson
11:00am-1:00pm:  Weather Center Live, with Alex Wallace
1:00pm-3:00pm:  Weather Center Live, with Dave Schwartz
3:00pm-6:00pm:  Weather Center Live, with Chris Warren & Jennifer Delgado

The Warren/Delgado block still features interviews with Crystal Egger (although taped) and Dan Leonard at that place in Massachusetts.  And of course, the poor OCMs doing the smaller, solo blocks have so much taped crap to show us that even they are useless (even though Dave yesterday did a fine job, I thought.  He is a true, fun and lively guy.)

I just hate that they broke up Alex Wilson and Dave Schwartz.  They were by far the best pair and most interesting WCL show.  Alex Wilson is now at Weather Underground and will do severe weather coverage from 6-9pm-when warrented.

Dave presents almost just as well solo, as with Keith Carson. Alex is a bit bland on his own, however.

According to Alex on Twitter, it's only during severe weather season...
Although, who knows with her sometimes...

I've gotta say this change would make sense if TWC was adding live weather, but they have actually taken away meteorologists such as Mark Elliott. Sarah Dillingham also hasn't been on Weather Underground since the change began. We can only hope for the addition of more live weather!

Mark Eliott left TWC? When? :unsure:

Cool, Keith Carson gets two hours.  He's funny.

He's still there, but it appears that he no longer has a show; I haven't seen him with Alex Wallace but I could be wrong. He's hosting Weather Underground right now.

Mark Elliot has been on both days this weekend in the evening. They've been doing live shows during the late afternoon into the evening, and they're similar to the new daytime blocks where there's one OCM by the screen in the main studio. Alexandra Steele, Bonnie Schneider, and Dave Schwartz have also been on.

Tomorrow, Mark Elliot and Alex Wallace will start anchoring together 11-3pm ET. I'm guessing Keith will do 9-11am solo?
