TWC Expands ‘Photo Gallery’7/08/2004 5:02 AM Eastern
The Weather Channel wants your weather pictures.
The network said Thursday that it has expanded its “Photo Gallery,” through which submitted weather photos are viewed on the cable network, weather.com (www.weather.com), Desktop Weather by The Weather Channel and its mobile weather services.
The “Daily Weather Pic” appears on TWC weeknights between 4 p.m.-6 p.m. as part of Afternoon Outlook, as well as being displayed on weather.com throughout the day. Surfers can also link to weather.com's Photo Gallery to browse through TWC’s collection of images, all caught on film by viewers and Web users.
“Because the weather plays such an important role in people's lives, our fans have always been eager to share their personal weather experiences with us and with other weather-watchers,” TWC Interactive vice president of product management Tom Flournoy said in a prepared statement. “Since 1999, we have received hundreds of snapshots every month.”
