Programming and Graphics / The Weather Channel Winter Moviefest
« on: Yesterday at 12:21:31 PM »
As of Friday, January 6, 2023, The Weather Channel has a new block called "Winter Moviefest" where they air movies on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 pm et and 12am et, with Thursday scheduled to be added on Thursday, February 2. The question is, what are your thoughts on The Weather Channel airing movies again after the fiasco this caused back in 2010?

OCMs & Personalities / Re: More on Bob Stokes's departure?
« on: November 14, 2022, 09:55:57 AM »
After years of knowing about the general consensus of what happened, I finally read the court document. My heart just wants to break for Hillary because she clearly went through absolute hell with him as well as Melissa. It's disturbing just how protected Bob was at TWC. And the fact that this was clearly an open secret among people that worked there makes it worse. I've been watching a lot of hurricane storm alert clips lately and I came across one that had Bob with Nicole Mitchell during Hurricane Dennis coverage. I could tell just from the first shot that Nicole DIDN'T want to be there with him. (And she had worked with Hillary at least once on First Outlook so I'm sure she knew by this point what he was like).

TWC is lucky this occurred a decade before #MeToo happened, because had this blown up during the height of that, a lot more backlash would have happened. I'm glad Hillary won her case but it is sad that we haven't seen anything from her since TWC. Melissa at least got a local gig in the Dayton, Ohio area a few years ago. That genuinely made me happy to see knowing what she had to go through too. Hillary deserves a comeback.

TWC isn't a good channel anymore but I hope it learned their lesson from this utter BS that Hillary rightfully sued them over.

Sending all the love for Hillary, Melissa and everyone else in 2022. We miss you!
Where did you see that video with Bob and Nicole working together? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Despite being just 6 years old at the time, I remember the exact date and the exact time when my XL upgraded to an IntelliStar. The last XL LF that I saw was somewhere in the 9am hour and the TWC feed was off the air for a couple hours with a black screen displaying a message (I don't remember what it said), but the feed returned just before the 11:18am LF and I was surprised to see the LF completely remodeled (not knowing there was a new LF equipment going on).

Local Forecast / Re: Question Regarding WeatherSTAR XLs and...
« on: September 04, 2022, 05:10:32 PM »
...special weather statements/significant weather alerts. (Which, with NWS coding, are one in the same)

How long do Special Weather Statements run on the XL? On IntelliSTAR, I believe it runs for 10 minutes, and then cuts off. Honestly, it should run longer, especially with Significant Weather Alerts. (Usually issued when a storm is just below severe levels, yet could still do damage)

Thanks,
Matt



Special Weather Statements ran for 10 minutes on the XL as well. All crawls did on both STARs, except for red crawl warning, which run until the warning expired, or in the case of a Flash Flood Warning, which run for longer than 10 hours, but not for the extended hours it would last for.

TWC should return to live weather programming 2pm-5pm instead of reruns of long form programming.
Leave the long form for evenings and overnight. vidmate.app saveinsta
Are you living in a world where it's pre-January 2014? Because since the DirecTV dispute in January 2014, TWC has had live weather every weekday from 2pm-5pm et, barring major holidays.

Does anybody have any full national satellite LF clips from the 1998-mid 1999 timeframe? I find the format they used then interesting to see since the only videos that exist are partial recordings. Years ago, on the twcclassics website, there was a full one from April 1998 with the song "L'Arc En Ciel De Miles" by "Incognito", but that hasn't been seen in years. Is there any chance that and/or some other full satellite LF clip from the 1998-mid 1999 timeframe is around somewhere? Also, are "Bobby Love's" songs from "Channel Weather" and "Channel Weather II" that played on TWC back in the late 1990s available anywhere? At the very least, if they're out of print but somebody has the CD, is there any chance that person could please post them on YouTube for people (including me) can enjoy the full-length versions of those classics from the late 1990s?

General Discussion / Re: Taiganet No More?
« on: July 21, 2022, 11:33:53 PM »
I know the site has gone down before, but usually pops back, would be a shame to see it discontinued.  Let's hope someone out there sees these posts and can offer more information.
Chances are, it's down for whatever reason. If the site was discontinued, it would give you a page displaying links to other websites or something rather than keep loading, then saying can't reach this page like you're not connected to the internet. The NWS servers could also be broken down and it's taking days and counting to get repaired, which has caused Taiganet to go down in the past.

I was wondering, if the Local on the 8s format ever did change, what do you think is the most likely possibility? Share your thoughts on the poll above.

These backgrounds are from after the LOT8's rebranding done in late 2019.

Ever since the icon change way back on December 12, 2006, "Showers Nearby" on the "Current Conditions" has used the "Scattered Showers" icon. However, since last summer, I have noticed that this inconsistently uses either the "Scattered Showers" icon or the "AM Showers"/"Few Showers" icon on the IntelliStar 2s. I also noticed that on a newly posted Weatherscan video (which over 8 years outdated, is still using the 2010 icons), "Showers Nearby" is using the "Rain/Showers/Light Rain" icon, which I'm surprised that Weatherscan would even get an update in the 2020s, unless this is an update to the "Current Conditions" system that would automatically go through to Weatherscan. Is there a reason for an inconsistency on "Showers Nearby" sometimes using the "Scattered Showers" icon and sometimes using the "Rain/Showers/Rain" (on Weatherscan) or the "AM Showers/Few Showers" (on the TWC IntelliStar 2s) icon?

The "Rain" icon seen on the picture above is missing from the package on the link you posted. What's also missing is the "Snow Flurries" icon (one that has slightly less snow than "Snow Showers" and "Light Snow". Is there a way you could please fix that?

Here's where I found it listed: https://weatherchannel.fandom.com/wiki/July/August_2007_Playlist
Plus there are also 2 posts on here that talk about this song: https://twctodayforums.com/forums/local-forecast/here-is-the-july-2007-playlist/
https://twctodayforums.com/forums/local-forecast/need-playlists-from-2007-and-2008/
Your playlist doesn't even list this song because 32 songs are listed on your playlist for July/August 2007, but there were actually 33 (while 15 Daytime, 10 Primetime, and 10 Overnight would be 35, 2 songs played in both Daytime and Primetime, which would mean there were 33 unique songs).

Hmm. I counted 31 unique songs on that page. (I added them to an Excel spreadsheet, sorted by first letter, and then deleted the duplicates.) Anyway, I sent an email to someone that might know. I'll post his answer here when I get it.

Update: He responded and believes that the song is "After Sunset" by Vince Madison on my playlist. He's not sure why it was originally under the name Nathaniel Valentin Bolensky.

I think he's right. "After Sunset" is not listed on the pages I linked to. No wonder I couldn't find "Nathaniel Valentin Bolensky" anywhere, I was looking for an artist who doesn't exist. This song was carried over from May/June 2007 Overnight and returned for the January 2008 Primetime playlist. Also, the "Weather Channel" "Fandom" page lists the correct song and artist name for the May/June 2007 and January 2008 playlists, so I don't get the alternate name and artist for July/August 2007. Also, people on here have talked about "After Sunset" over the years. It does make sense that "Setting Sun" is actually "After Sunset", since the titles are similar.

Since I know what the other 9 Overnights from that playlist sound like, I would know what "Setting Sun" was by process of elimination if I heard it. Maybe someday, you could go through your footage from July/August 2007 and see what you could find from the 1-5am et time slot (which was the time slot for Overnight back then), if perhaps, "Setting Sun" is in one of the LFs from then. If you know what the other 9 songs from that Overnight sound like like I do, you'll know "Setting Sun" by process of elimination if you hear it.

Is this song from the July/August 2007 Overnight playlist available anywhere under a different name and/or artist? It's one of the songs MrDaniel789 from YouTube is missing from his July/August 2007 playlist clips, and there are no clips from anybody else anywhere with this song, and I'm interested in hearing what it even sounds like.

TWC Today News / Re: Some changes on the Forum
« on: January 07, 2022, 10:24:15 AM »
Yes, to answer to the above questions, and to reiterate a previous point.. We are working on a plan to design a forum-integrated 'home' page. Two goals that are apart of this are to re-theme the forum, and to include basically a landing page where these previous components of TWCT website would be available.
Are there still plans to re-add the old components of the TWCToday website to the forums? I'm only asking because it's been almost 2 years and no sign of anything has shown up yet.
