Weather Service

Maybe so Ron, but personally I don't like getting my weather on a small distorted sounding cell phone or some tiny screen.  The WBZ telephone
report is a complete report done in good sound by one of the staff meteorologists which I can put up on "speaker-phone" and listen comfortably .
Actually, the computer ISP that I use pre-programs local weather on its welcome screen. TV weather has now developed into lengthy, often inaccurate 
reports that open with a "tease" and extend several minutes to get the basic information one needs.  Sure ain't like the days of old radio weather with 
E.B. Rideout, Don Kent and others from the old days.
