FINALLY. An anchor sticks up for breaking into normal programming for lifesaving weather information. This happens to us at the radio station all the time. I know you need to hear Elton John and Kiki Dee sing "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" one more time... BUT there is a tornado on the ground and we need to tell people about it. Just because it's not happening where you live doesn't mean it's not affecting friends and family across town.
The meteorologist wrote this about his brave co-host, "This morning my amazing co-anchor, Nancy Naeve, went on a rant about the nasty emails, calls and social media messages we received after breaking into the "Once Upon A Time" season finale.
I don't take the decision to break in lightly, but when there's a confirmed tornado on the ground that is headed toward people's homes, I break in. I don't care what's on."
