    I'm curious are there any stations out there that still follow / incorporate the now defunct NBC Weather Plus branding aside from WBAL?

    KPNX for its 24-hour local weather channel that still exists, 12 News Weather+. It's an affiliate of The Local AccuWeather Channel.

    Not that I know of at least in Oklahoma City now the brands they go by:

    KFOR: 4Warn Storm Team

    KOCO: First Alert Weather

    KOKH: StormWatch

    KWTV doesn't have a Weather brand other than just News 9 Weather.

    I know they got rid of that a few years ago in Philadelphia. ABC also got rid of the 24 hour AccuWeather channel as well.

    These are the names in Philly:
    KYW: Eyewitness Weather
    WPVI: AccuWeather
    WCAU: First Alert Weather
    WTXF: The Weather Authority

    Who said this should be a station branding thread? It was a simple question.

    #whendidlistthreadsstopbeingdiscouraged?

    I know, right? I'm guilty of doing this but I'll bring it back on-topic.

    As far as I'm concerned, KPNX still uses it and so does WJXX. Yes, WJXX - ABC is broadcasting the local weather channel under "First Coast News Weather Plus."

    Those are the only two, IMO, that still use it for a 24/7 local weather channel.

    None of these are WeatherPLUS brands, so there's no reason to post them in this thread.......

    I know. To be fair, I did say I'm guilty of doing so but I tried to bring the topic back to normal by saying KPNX and WJXX.

    At times we all get caught up in TV News Land with the branding and other things. We did it, and the world hasn't ended. I don't see what the big deal is in my book. It's what it's. No harm, no malice, but whatevs.
