IT SNOWED - A LOT - but does that make it news?
Most of the local newscasts have lead their broadcasts with weather stories for the past few days. Is the snow the biggest story in the region?
Or, is weather the greatest common denominator and thus likely to draw in the largest audience?
Do you actually want weather information (beyond forecasts) or do newscasts provide that information because weather is an emotional subject?
