As the feud between The Weather Channel and DIRECTV enters its third week, TWC president David Clark says his network’s coverage of the winter storm in the Deep South gives him confidence that they will ultimately win the battle.
In a note sent Thursday night, Clark thanked staffers for their work covering the severe weather in Atlanta and elsewhere, noting that many Weather Channel employees reporting on the storm were also affected by the storm.
I know people are tired. We are asking a lot of ourselves right now in general, even before we get to storm coverage. I don’t need to tell you what a critical time this is for this team and our network, and how many Americans are counting on us to pull through. The way we win and protect our future is by putting out great TV every day. And like all of you, I intend to win. It is easy to be confident when you work with this team.
