Evening Edition was a weather program broadcast by The Weather Channel. Evening Edition included multiple hours of programming, cut into by long-form programs such as When Weather Changed History, as well as a repeating overnight hour.

Program history[edit]

Evening Edition debuted in 2001, the first program to cut into the time slot of Weather Center, as part of a shift from 24-hour Weather Center to multiple focused programs that occurred during 2000 and 2001.

Because of long-form programs, Evening Edition aired its first hour, then long-form programs, then two hours, then long-form programs repeated from earlier, followed by the overnight hour.[1]

During the final five months of the its run, the first hour of Evening Edition, aired at 8pm eastern (instead of 9pm eastern), was hosted by Stephanie Abrams and Mike Bettes and, for most intents and purposes, was an extension of the preceding program, Abrams & Bettes: Beyond the Forecast. The second and third hours were the main program, hosted by Jim Cantore, Paul Goodloe and Alexandra Steele.

The overnight hour aired live after the second hour of long-form programs (repeated from the first hour). It was hosted by one meteorologist and then was repeated twice until the next morning's first program (either First Outlook on weekdays or When Weather Changed History on weekends).

It was revealed via changes to electronic program guide systems and through an inadvertent image change on the The Weather Channel media kit website that the show's time slots would be given to a relaunched version of Weather Center, which contains a mix of the traditional Evening Edition format as well as new segments. Weekends were also slated to feature PM Edition Weekend in place of Evening Edition, but only for three hours - it later turned out that Weather Center was to take this over too. The remainder of the weekend evenings now featured long-form programming.

Evening Edition's final broadcast aired on Sunday, March 1, 2009.
