The Weather Network

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Weather Network (TWN) is an English language weather information specialty channel. It delivers weather information on television, the Internet and TV apps. The Weather Network is shown in Canada, the United States of America (USA) and the United Kingdom (UK).

The Weather Network was licensed by Canadian-Radio television and Telecommunications Commission on December 1, 1987.[1] It began broadcasting on September 1, 1988 (six years after the United States' Weather Channel). The name then was WeatherNow. The channel gained its present name on May 1, 1989.

The Weather Network's news department won the first annual Adrienne Clarkson Diversity Award for network television. This award is given under the Radio and Television News Director's Association for the best news reports on a subject of cultural diversity. The Weather Network later won for its 2006 two-part series on weather and black history, with an exemplary practice of inclusion and equity.
