    I can picture it now:

    "Storm Ranger 4 is giving you exclusive access to the clouds of smoke caused by this once in a lifetime earth quake. So here once again is where the smoke is headed courtesy of the Santa Ana winds. Just to remind you all Storm Ranger 4 can go places no other Doppler radars can go giving you a closer view to YOUR community and how the weather will affect you."

    Meanwhile every other station in LA is live across Southern California reporting the damage from the air and on the ground.

    No, but the county will. Just give them enough $$$ and they'll bend over backwards... Just ask Supervisor Horn and his developer buddies...

    Not quite the Doppler 4000 promo but would this count as throwing shade?

    Another NBC S-band dual-pol radar has been installed. This time, the new radar has landed in South Florida. On top of its Miramar office.

    Welcome aboard First Alert Doppler 6000.

    Looks good but all I'm thinking of is the imfamous Doppler Dead Zone promo that WTWO put out. I was just reading literature from both Barron and EEC recommending the Doppler be placed 23 miles away from the core coverage area. Miramar seems to be a bit close to Miami.

    So KNSD has rebranded its weather segments to "FIRST ALERT Weather". Now, we wait for KNSD to get that magical doppler like the other O&O's...
