YOUR TURN: Too much distraction

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, TN -

We received many complimentary letters this week for our winter weather forecasts and coverage, but you can't please everybody. This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Chad Milburn. He took issue with our school closing display.

In his words:

Is it really necessary to take roughly two-thirds of the screen to display the school closings? It's obviously nice to be informed of such information, but simple scrolling text would suffice. It's bordering on pathetic the way all the local Memphis channels are competing to have the biggest weather radar, most graphics on screen, etc. People simply want to watch network programming with as little distraction as possible and minus all the unnecessary graphics taking up precious screen space. Why exactly is that so hard to accomplish?

That's Chad Milburn's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
