I wrote the following email to Channel 12. I sent it to the Station Manager, James Smith:
Dear Channel 12,
We really do understand that when severe weather is in the area, you need to alert people. We understand if you have to interrupt the LSU/Auburn game for 30 or 45 seconds to give an alert.
After that, a simple graphic on the screen would suffice to keep us informed.
That seems to work for your competition, and the people who watch them are as well informed as the people who had the ball game interrupted.
You also have a responsbility to carry sports broadcasting that the network feeds you, especially when just about everyone in the local area is watching it.
Now, if an actual tornado forms, and then if, god forbid, it touches down, we would understand another interruption. This was not the case.
How many times did your weather person go back to the beginning and give us a history of the entire sequence of the system, from the first drop of rain to the END OF THE GAME.
We get it, we really do. We're just wondering when you will get it?
