12.2 Audio

If you aren't familiar with it, Storm Team 12 has a dedicated weather channel, known as Always on Storm Team 12, and you'll find it on Cox Digital Cable 675, or over the air on 12.2 Last year, we started streaming our audio from the weather center so that viewers could listen in as we analyze the storms in realtime behind the scenes. On busy severe weather days, it is one of the best places to get information because as soon as it comes into our office, you're going to hear about it. And nowadays, we have several sources of information, including our storm chasers that roam around the state, providing eyewitness reports to what the storm is actually doing.

A viewer recently commented on an improper comment she heard on 12.2, and it led to this comment on my blog:

I would truly appreciate an apology.

The open mics in the weather center are intentional because we feel it maximizes our storm coverage on 12.2, without all of the necessary interruptions on KWCH. From time to time, you'll hear us answer the phone, or discuss something that may not be directly related to storms, but we will always do our best to be aware we're broadcasting our audio for everyone to hear . You expect the best from our team and we always strive to be just that. Thanks for understanding and welcome your feedback.
