IBM sale[edit]

I made a change on Jan 30th that seems to be reverted, so it still says this is owned by Bain, NBC, etc. Anyone know what that was changed? Was my modification incorrect? Thanks. -KaJunl (talk) 00:50, 27 February 2016 (UTC)

According to this TheWrap article about the sale, the Weather Channel is still owned by Bain, Blackstone, and NBC. IBM bought Weather.com, Weather Underground, and the other digital businesses. FuriousFreddy (talk) 19:59, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

I propose a rewrite or breaking the article into two. Currently, it's not clear that the digital assets and the television channel are owned by two separate companies. Gamerzworld (talk) 13:22, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

At the bottom of any page on weather.com, it currently says "The Weather Channel - An IBM Business" BrianAshe (talk) 19:57, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

Weatherscan no longer owned by TWC?[edit]

Hello, Wikipedians. Do any of you know if TWC is no longer owning Weatherscan? TWC's logo has been off Weatherscan since March 29, 2016 and has not reappeared. It has been unknown if this is a glitch or if this is a new update, and it is also unknown if TWC is no longer owning Weatherscan.

  • Weatherscan dropped TWC's logo so they can drop their references in favor for Weather Group Television. The Weather Channel and Weatherscan are still in the same company, though. Weather Group Television just wanted to have references for Weatherscan. Also I have corrected your grammar.

Other Weather Channel Meteorologists[edit]

If you are a fan of TWC Meteorologists Chris Warren, Liana Brackett, Alex Wallace, Alexandra Wilson, Greg Postel, or Mark Elliott, you may have noticed that they are not mentioned on Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Keybeeny (talkcontribs) 23:04, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

Kelly Cass is listed for possible deletion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kelly Cass. The outcome there should probably be reflected here. For now I'm restoring the link to Kelly Cass; if it's deleted we can remove it then. —Guanaco 06:29, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

More of the others, like Reynolds Wolf and Jen Carfagno are very weakly sourced as well, more AfD:s might be the way to go. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 11:05, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

The entries for Goodloe and LaRosa are the most weakly sourced by far. However, thanks to your contribution and others, the entry for Cass is now one of the ones with the strongest sources. Keybeeny (talk) 13:46, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

If that´s right, then it´s time to delete some articles about weather people, Cass included. But probably not Al Roker. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 16:22, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

"Probably" not Al Roker? You either have an understated sense of humor or live outside the United States. Keybeeny (talk) 20:52, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

Yes to both, it was an attempt at humor, even I have heard that name. Otherwise, the only weather-person my brain bothers to know the name of is John Pohlman [1]. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 05:22, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
