OCMs & Personalities / Cheryl Lemke
« on: August 20, 2011, 11:00:36 AM »
I split this off from the other topic since, well, she's not in the ATL anymore...she's in South Bend, IN at WSBT.
Fun story: there were three very good meteorologists there...two had babies and they fired the other guy.

She seems to be a hire (not a temp) since she has a bumper already...the other guy they picked up didn't have a bumper for a couple months.  Great hire for the area.

Attached since WSBT flags on YouTube.

Programming and Graphics / New Schedule
« on: September 24, 2010, 10:12:59 AM »
Monday-Thursday

4-6AM: First Outlook
6-7AM: Al
7-10AM: Your Weather Today
10-11AM: Al
11-2PM, 2-5PM: Day Planner
5-7PM: 4 Storm Stories
7-8PM, 8-10PM, 10-11PM, 11-1AM, 1-2AM, 2-4AM: Weather Center

Friday:
Same until 7PM
7-8PM: Weather Center
8-9PM: When Nature Strikes Back
9-10PM: Tornado
---this three hour block repeats until 4AM Saturday

Weekend:
4AM: Weather Classroom
4:30AM: Sunrise Weather
5-7AM, 7-9AM, 9-11AM: Weekend View
11-2PM: Weekend Now
2PM: Storm Riders
2:30PM: Storm Stories
3PM: Sea Tek
3:30PM: Cantore Stories
4-5PM: PM Edition
--- the whole 2-5 PM block repeats until 4AM, except that Weatherproof replaces Sea Tek at 8PM (and repeats with the block) and Weather Center replaces PM Edition at 10PM and also repeats with the block

I think this is a very good schedule...especially the weekday.  5-7PM I would think that most people would get their weather on their local newcasts, so why bother with live programming then?

I have been looking everywhere for a clean copy of the first print of Swing Shift...all I found until today was the remixed version with Dave Koz.  Then today, I found this....

WeatherSTAR Tech Support / 26820 - No Ls
« on: May 21, 2010, 03:54:00 PM »
Right now on IStar 26820 , Severe T'Storm Watch 199 is scrolling on the yellow LDL with all the Ls replaced by what appears to be underscores.

i.e. THE WEATHER CHANNEL reads THE WEATHER CHANNE_.

(Well, it stopped scrolling just now, but still.)

...the day I got the beta test of the IStar overhaul.  Noticed this wasn't really covered on the site, so here's a couple of vids of the Star before, during, after the update.

Also: some Rich and Sharon love, too!

General Discussion / Changing cell phones

Okay gang, need advice.  Gonna be changing cell phones here shortly, from a generic phone to a smartphone.  Going to be sticking with AT&T as well.

Sooo....iPhone or Blackberry?  Commence debate.
