Viewer Critique of Weather Coverage
As I've said many times, usually people are quick to complain and slow to praise. But every once in awhile, there are those are willing to send kinds words. After a weekend of double duty, our weekend crew was happy to see this e-mail I got from Anne Bartell. It was very sweet of her to take the time to send a positive message. Here's Anne's e mail.
Well once again TMJ4 was miles ahead of the competition. This time it was the weather crew this past weekend. And I should be writing to them, but I know for sure that you read your e-mails. Would you please be so kind as to pass this along to the crew? I would so appreciate that.
I was in Salem, MA on Saturday 6/7 and had no idea how frightening the weather was back in Milwaukee until I made an ordinary call to my family. My family member quickly informed me that at that very moment I was calling, it was pouring rain like mad and tornadoes were a possibility..... right in the vicinity of my new house in Franklin!
We kept the conversation short and as soon as I got off the phone, I typed in 'tmj4' on my laptop and ......voila! I was able to see live and comprehensive coverage of the storm. I was able to easily follow every single minute by minute detail. Scott Steele was superb! Michael Fish, Jay Olstad and ......omg I can't remember the other reporter's name who reported from Randolph, WI..... and I do apologize.....were excellent, supportive, informative and extremely helpful. I knew exactly what was going on and where, to the point when I knew it was safe to call my family once the storm blew over.
I typed in channels 6 and 12 to see if I could gain even more information........ and Carole.......they weren't even CLOSE to the caliber of reporting tmj4 provided. I was able to hear an audio from Bart Adrian, but honestly your guys were miles and miles ahead of what I could see from my laptop.
So once again, I would like to thank 'tmj4' for reporting that goes WAY above and beyond. I have depended upon 'tmj4' now that I am working outside of the Milwaukee area and can count on your reliability and accuracy.
tmj4 is truly in a class by itself.
Your hard work and dedication are appreciated more than you can ever know. Please keep up your outstanding quality. It shows.
