Hurricane Hilary

Recommended Posts

As for how local affiliates cover it, many should be able to take playbooks/graphics from sister stations (KNBC & KNSD can take from WTVJ, KFMB can take from WJXX and WTSP, etc.) Granted the anchors, reporters, and mets in CA, for instance, are probably about as comfortable with covering a hurricane as their FL counterparts are with covering an earthquake, but most stations have the "how to cover a hurricane" playbook at their disposal.

On a national level, TWC went to long-form at 1pm ET. They're scheduled to be back live from 5pm-1am ET, long form from 1am-5am ET, and then round-the-clock coverage begins starting Sunday at 5am ET.


Fox Weather started a pre-recorded loop at 2pm ET solo-hosted by Jane Minar. They just went live with an update at around 4:50pm ET when the latest advisory came out. Unclear if they're planning any other fully-live programming throughout the later part of the day.

It wouldn't surprise me if some meteorologists at Florida-based stations are working behind the scenes (remotely, either from home or from their regular stations) to help -- and provide coaching on how to cover a hurricane. Considering the number of companies that own stations in both regions -- Nexstar, Tegna, Scripps, NBCU, CBS, Fox, Telemundo, etc -- it's bound to be happening in some form.


At the very least, someone's brain was picked.
