Escape the Election with The Weather Channel
Network Announces it will have Absolutely Zero Election Coverage on Election Day
ATLANTA (Nov. 1, 2016) -- This election year, American citizens have endured wall to wall breathless tension from our colleagues in the news media, and our forecast calls for a 100% chance that will continue through election day. Wouldn't it be nice if we all had a place to escape? If you think The Weather Channel is going to tell you to sit back, relax and stick your head in the clouds... you are correct.
This election night, as other networks go low, The Weather Channel goes high... to the sky that is. Clouds! Rainbows! Autumn Splendor! And... yes... smooth jazz! Weather will have it all in a 9-hour chill marathon guaranteed to evoke tranquility and set your soul at ease.
Starting at 3 p.m. ET on November 8, the marathon will include the most beautiful, awe-inspiring, and calming weather video and scenery ever caught on tape. This world is a beautiful and magical place after all.
So go vote America and check out election results, but if you want a break from the pundits, pontifications, predictions and politics... turn to Weather.
It's going to be huge.
