I found this interesting. As of June 20, 2018, VizRT has discontinued it's Viz Weather software.

http://www.vizrt.com/incoming/54666/End_of_Life_Announcement_%E2%80%93_Viz_Weather

Now they will continue product support until June 20, 2020, this means that the Viz Weather application will no longer receive critical updates or support after that date. As for The Weather Channel, this could be a major blow to their HD and SD DBS Forecast (National Local on the 8s) and possibly their Intellistar 2 and 2jr systems. This means they will be forced to use their MAX ecosystem or Viz Multi Channel for the National Local Forecast systems. We do know the Intellistar 2 uses the Viz Render Engine, so it may be as simple as sending new radar data from the Max system for it's radar segments, but for the HD and SD DBS, they will be forced to build a new platform and possible redesigns.

According to a recent tweet, Maria LaRosa is leaving TWC after 8 years. Her last day of working at the Weather Channel was today.

I will miss her...honestly, she was my favorite OCM that joined the channel this decade.

EDIT: Just when I created this topic, she changed her @ to TheMariaLaRosa, removing TWC.

I noticed this too. They should have made some major changes to the design, like making the local on the 8s graphic on the side have a different gradient.

I decided to try to debunk the idea that he faked it and this was what I gathered.
