Shreveport Station Becomes Weather Ready Nation Ambassador

KTAL/Channel 6/Shreveport has been designated by the National Weather Service as Weather Ready Nation Ambassador.  The NWS office in Shreveport says KTAL is the first station in Louisiana to become a Weather Ready Nation Ambassador.  The NWS website says the goal of the National Weather Service's Weather-Ready Nation initiative is increasing the nation's weather-readiness so that the country will be better prepared to protect, mitigate, and respond to and recover from weather-related disasters.

The Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador initiative is an effort to formally recognize NOAA partners who are improving the nation's readiness against extreme weather, water, and climate events. As a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador, the Bossier Parish Library will work with the National Weather Service to strengthen the area's resilience against extreme weather by taking a leadership role in educating the public on weather hazards and promoting weather awareness activities in the community.

This is such a sham. It's almost as bad as Todd Warren wanting the people to think he has a doppler radar. They don't, but they show one in a KTAL weather rate ad. Fact is, Todd Warren can't be accurate without a doppler radar. During severe weather KTAL is no capable to keep-up. This make them look stupid.

Lots of hype, smoke & mirrors at KTAL. But it makes for good promos, don'tcha think?

It's deceiving people, so it's not right.

Since when has KTAL or any station around here cared about advertising ethics?

With the 3 big weather vendors doing such a great job with getting radar data from them, many stations that DID have their own radars don't anymore. I can cite a large market like Nashville for example. They have 4 stations that heavily promote their news and weather departments. Only one of those stations actually owns their own Doppler radar. It's not the #1 station for news in Nashville either. Go one market south and you have small market (relative to Nashville), Huntsville, AL, which has 3 news operations. All 3 stations have their own radars! With Dual Polar technology now available, I think the days of us seeing radar sweeps will slowly come to an end. Now I am going to go to YouTube and see if I can find some KTAL severe weather coverage to see what they do and how they perform during it.
