TV stations leverage powerful and promotable AccuWeather brand, Superior Accuracy and market exclusivity to boost ratings
AccuWeather Global Weather Center, April 20, 2022 — AccuWeather, the proven leader in weather forecast accuracy, is offering market-exclusive Brand and Forecast Partnerships at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas, April 24-27, Booth #N4506. The powerful and most trusted weather brand and its superior forecasting services are available to one station per market and those that have partnered with AccuWeather have been ratings leaders in their DMAs year after year.
AccuWeather is scheduling meetings at NAB with local TV stations in markets that are available to discuss the Partnership offering on an exclusive market-by-market basis.
The AccuWeather Brand and Forecast Partnership has been highly successful for the ABC-OTV stations in eight top markets, including Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Houston, San Francisco, Chicago and many others. In the most comprehensive analysis of on-air forecast accuracy undertaken to date, independent data researcher Kantar concluded that AccuWeather weather forecasts in the eight ABC markets examined are the most accurate by a significant margin and provided the most useful details to help audiences make the best decisions over the other local television stations. Many other stations have recorded the same exceptional results.
AccuWeather forecasts are backed by the decades of experience of AccuWeather’s over 125 meteorologists, including some of the top-ranked forecasters worldwide, who serve over half the Fortune 500 and thousands of other companies and government agencies, and collaborate daily with local TV meteorologists.
The Brand and Forecast Partnership includes access to AccuWeather specialist forecasting teams, including the AccuWeather Hurricane Center, the Severe Weather Center in Wichita and AccuWeather’s Snow Warning Desk, as well as expert broadcast meteorologists for special segments, on-air interviews, and additional consultation.
"AccuWeather’s superior forecasts help TV meteorologists and weather presenters deliver outstanding weather presentations so their audiences can make the most informed weather-impacted decisions,” said Keith Ackers, Senior Account Executive, TV Systems and Partnerships. “Greater audience trust in on-air talent and their broadcasts results in higher ratings for our partners.”
