Everyone Talks About the Weather; WFLD Does Something About It

Who isn’t having weird weather these days?
But when six tornadoes approached Northern Illinois last weekend, the Fox-owned TV station WFLD-TV broke into programming seven times and also offered a live chat online during the entire time the station tracked the storm. The weather team chatted live with viewers for several hours Saturday afternoon at http://www.myfoxchicago.com/. During that time about 2,500 people were chatting concurrently.
Not too shabby for live chat on a local TV station.
Here’s an example of what a live station chat looks like.
