Save Weather World sign now

Attention viewing public, students and instructors,

If you haven't already heard, WPSX, the network currently airing Weather World across the state, is ending production of the program on July 30. Weather World is the network's number one rated show and is currently in its 21st year of airing. The ending of the show has already had an effect on not only those in the Weather Communications Group, including students and instructors, but also the fans of the show from many areas of Pennsylvania. The actions of WPSX have caused great concern throughout the viewing public and has resulted in ongoing petitions in the hopes of saving Weather World.

Many local newspapers have been contacted and are currently developing articles on the hasty decision made by those at WPSX. A website, www.saveweatherworld.com, has been created anonymously in order to give the public an opportunity to post their concerns on the cancellation of the show. In order to contribute to the cause, students within the Meteorology Department at Penn State would like to give the viewing public, students and instructors the opportunity to voice their opinions on the matter. To show your support, please sign this online petition. There will also be hard copies of this petition posted throughout the Walker Building, for those in the State College area.

For those who would like to make further comments on the matter, there is a list of contacts found below. This information can also be found on the Save Weather World website. If you are uncomfortable contacting any of these people, please feel free to send an e-mail to any of the weather station interns listed below and your response will be kept anonymous. With your help, and the support of local viewers, our hope is that we might be able to keep the show in production!

With great hopes,
The Weather Station Interns

    Please, do not take Weather World off the air. I have watched the show ever since I was a little kid. No one gives you weather like the guys at Weather World. I look forward to watching the show everyday after work.

    I personally think Weather World is too important a program to cancel. It also seems likely that it would be detrimental to the Meteorology program at PSU.
