Ok, so it didn’t even wait until Friday’s Q&A. But Rob Owen did receive a few complaints about the weather interruptions on 4/23. Despite the complaints, Owen states, “…but by now I think most viewers understand that local TV stations serve a large geographic area, and just because there’s no danger of a tornado at your home doesn’t mean there isn’t danger elsewhere in the viewing area.”
Of course, the one complaint I wasn’t expecting was the unintended interruption of Fox’s “24”. The most intense moment was interrupted by a promo for Channel 11 News on Fox 53. According to station management, the error was human and most certainly unintentional. Be that as it may, the station may never be forgiven by Pittsburgh fans of “24”.
