Weather Channel purchase of Weather Underground stirs passions, controversy

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012 8:52am MST

In big news for the commercial weather industry, The Weather Channel recently announced it was buying competing weather website Weather Underground. Reaction to the merger of the nation’s most commercial weather company and the nation’s first commercial weather website was swift and not very supportive.

Here at ThorntonWeather.com we are big fans of the Weather Undergound (despite their co-founder’s global warming alarmism).  As for The Weather Channel, we pretty much ignore them.

Find out more about this business deal and why many are unhappy about it.
