Excessive Weather Alerts

Staff Pick

We don’t know why TV news stations everywhere have lost their minds over “special” weather technology, but we do know how “especially” irritating it is for that BEEP-BEEP-BEEP sound to blare in the middle of a favorite show, just to let us know a storm’s on the way — not to mention the times shows are pre-empted altogether, leaving viewers furious. Absurd depths were reached during the now-infamous “Tornados in Hickory!” debacle, in which endless, mind-numbing blather and snazzoid graphics ruined an afternoon’s viewing for millions. Get a grip, guys, and give us the info without being so thoughtlessly intrusive.
