News/Talk 790, KFYO Tour of the New KAMC 28 High-Definition Weather Lab
Thursday evening, I had the chance to see the new KAMC 28 High-Definition Weather Lab with Ron Roberts and Heidi Waggoner. Ron is the Chief Meteorologist for KAMC 28; News/Talk 790, KFYO; 98.1 KOOL FM and the rest of Townsquare Media of Lubbock.
The new technology Ron & Heidi have access to will allow them to present more weather information within their forecasts. Some of that technology includes high-definition skycams and new weather forecasting software.
In the new KAMC 28 set, the Weather Lab has its own separate desk and a number of new computers. This will allow for a better flow of information during severe weather events for radio listeners and television viewers. Also, KFYO will continue to provide live weather data from our studios, to the Weather Lab, for daily forecasts and severe weather events.
Here are a few photos of the new KAMC 28 high-definition set, including KAMC 28 anchor Bryan Mudd preparing for a stand-up, the new news desk, Red Raider Nation sports set and the green screen for the KAMC 28 Weather Lab:
