WeatherNation expands into Michigan
| 02 October 2014
WeatherNation TV is expanding into Michigan, with partnerships local TV affiliates and two cable MSOs.
The weather channel has a deal with WILX-TV 10 to broadcast round-the-clock weather news on digital TV channel 10.2 across Lansing and Jackson, Mich. It will also be added to the channel bouquets of Comcast Channel 294 and WOW Cable Channel 152 across central Michigan.
WeatherNation TV currently delivers local, regional and national weather programming in multiple cities, including Washington, DC, Atlanta, Boston, Minneapolis and Denver, and in northern Alabama via a just-announced deal.
"We are thrilled to be upgrading the coverage of WILX-TV's Weather Authority on our digital weather channel 10.2 with WeatherNation, which provides us comprehensive national weather coverage that is perfectly paired with mid-Michigan's leading weather experts Andy Provenzano and Darrin Rockcole," said Michael King, vice president and general manager of WILX-TV. "Weather can be dangerous at times. Combining our Weather Authority team with the resources of WeatherNation gives us unparalleled coverage capabilities when it matters most."
