South Carolina Educational Television (SCETV) and South Carolina Public Radio launched a new, storytelling-focused weather service.
Located online at www.scetv.org/weather, the new service gives people in South Carolina a unique information hub for everything weather-related. Visitors to the site will be able to access hourly weather data, as well as news stories informing them how they might be affected locally and what safety precautions they need to take. Featuring interactive weather maps, the service will pull data from eight remote weather stations across the state.
Aiming to tie all the aspects viewers and listeners love about SCETV and S.C. Public Radio into one daily, essential service, updates may also be found on social media by following @SCETV and @SCPublicRadio on Twitter and Facebook.
“Our ability to put this weather information in context is what sets our service apart,” said Anthony Padgett, SCETV president and CEO. “Thanks to the incredible reporting our staff does, we’ll be able to let our users know what to expect and how the weather is going to affect their town - all from one convenient platform.”
