WTMJ - Today's TMJ4 Weather Plus Weather Center (The Paul Joseph Weather Center)

WITI - FOX6 Weather Center

WISN - Weather Watch 12 Weather Center

WDJT - First Alert Weather

 

These are the names to the best to my knowledge. WTMJ re-named their weather center after Paul Joseph when he retired. The rest are not very inventive at all.
