New weather channel launches

WBFF (Fox 45) is combining with WeatherNation TV to give Baltimore a new 24-hour weather channel, the two announced on Monday. The programming appears on digital TV channel 45.2, channel 205 for Comcast customers and 465 for Verizon subscribers. WeatherNation carries local, regional and national weather information, featuring members of WBFF’s on-air weather staff. In its news release — making an obvious reference to The Weather Channel’s programming — WeatherNation says it “delivers a back-to-basics approach to weather reporting and forecasting. Instead of long-form shows interspersed with short bouts of weather news, WeatherNation TV offers continuous coverage of hyper-local, local, regional and national weather events.”
